Home for Good, the Continuum of Care, and our Partner Agencies work from a client By-Name List. This By-Name List is a real-time list of people experiencing homelessness in our community. The list is monitored and updated daily to ensure everyone’s needs are being met and that no one gets lost in the system. The By-Name List has proven to be an effective tool in our mission.
During the month of December, 2021, the average number of people on the By-Name List was 363. According to the By-Name List data and client-shared information, we can share the data for living situation and household type. The percentages reflected in the graphs are based on the average number of 363 individuals experiencing homelessness.
