Introduction to Homeless Risk Reduction

Homeless Risk Reduction can be used to identify where regular reports of homeless activity might originate and address regular reports of homelessness activity in a community.

It provides the ability to leverage continual reports of homeless individuals and encampments in the community and identify which areas are at risk for generating homelessness. This collaborative approach between the public and local government agencies help determine where resources can be deployed to assess the situation, offer services to homeless persons, and determine if additional steps are required. Homeless Risk Reduction is typically implemented by health and human services agencies that want to proactively address homelessness and connect homeless individuals with available resources.

The Homeless Risk Reduction solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you understand where homelessness may originate in your community and actively monitor regular reports of homelessness so assistance can be offered to individuals in need.
