Homeless System Evaluator Tool

Training Materials  |  February 21, 2014

The Center for Capacity Building developed a Homeless System Evaluator Tool. This tool is designed to help communities determine how well they are preventing and ending homelessness based on data from their system. Specifically, this tool helps determine whether a community’s homeless assistance system moves people into permanent housing quickly, helps people remain in housing, and generates these and other positive outcomes cost-effectively. The Evaluator is currently being used by communities preparing to implement the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act as part of the Alliance’s System Design Clinic. Data from the Homeless System Evaluator can be used to populate the Performance Improvement Calculator.


If you need additional assistance with the tool, please email the Center for Capacity Building.
