Veterans AHAR for Homeless Management


We are pleased to announce another tool for those managing Homeless Coalitions, funded by HUD (US Department of Housing and Urban Development).

The AHAR now allows users to run the report for Veterans Only (or, as previously, for all non-veterans as well.

The AHAR tool is designed to assist Continuum of Care jurisdictions in preparing data to submit to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for their annual report to the US Congress.  Our release notes are available in the Customer Resource Center.

It is increasingly clear to us that communities need to integrate their homeless prevention strategies with other community partnerships, such as elder care, information and referral, and so forth.  An integrated response reduces the costs of data collection and management, decreases the costs of software and hardware, reduces fraud and duplication, and improves client service.  Can't get much better than that!
