If you’re currently working with a case manager or service professional, ask them about the CATCH program.

CATCH utilizes the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), a computerized data collection tool specifically designed to capture client-level, system-wide information, over time, on the characteristics and services needs of men, women, and children experiencing homelessness.
