Overview

Homeless Activity Reporter is a configuration of Survey123 for ArcGIS that can be used by the general public and engaged organizations to report the location of homeless individuals and encampments in the community.

Whereas the Homeless Point-in-Time Counts survey is typically conducted on a single night in January, the Homeless Activity Reporter application can be used year-round by the general public to report homeless activity in the community.

Health and Human Services personnel can configure the Crowdsource Manager application and Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS to monitor, verify, and assign reports to internal staff or volunteers that provide aid to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
