Community Based Shelters

Did you know we have a community sheltering module, too? Yes--separate and different from the National Shelter System, and its 55,000 shelters, this one is community focused.

In fact, we are releasing upgrades that have to do with capturing transportation information, and several useful enhancements around types of shelters, basic services, and additional services.

If you are current customer, you may want to log into our Customer Resource Center and explore the Shelter Space module; deployment is but a switch away. This is a perfect example of sharing resources across many organizational partners--many of which support clients who sometimes need sheltering services, and explicitly not because of a natural disaster.

Of course, there is no charge for this module.
