Welcome to the Seattle/King County HMIS!

A Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a secure online database that stores data on all homelessness services that are provided in King County. Seattle/King County uses this data to improve the ability of local organizations to provide access to housing and services, and strengthen our efforts to end homelessness. All identifiable information is securely stored within the HMIS, and state-of-the-art security features protect the privacy of all clients. Read more about HMIS.
