The latest reports from the Joint Office of Homeless Services
JOHS Quarterly Reports
These System Performance Reports track statistics, demographics data and progress in key performance measures based on quarterly data. System outcomes data is generated by Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) staff in the month following the close of a quarter, and then the data is analyzed by JOHS staff.
Supportive Housing Services (SHS) Quarterly Reports
Supportive Housing Services (SHS) is a coordinated effort between Metro and Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties to reduce chronic and overall homelessness. With voters’ approval of Measure 26-210, funding has been dedicated to improve access to services for communities of color, people with disabilities, low-income households and others most at risk of homelessness.
Point-in-Time Count Reports
The federally required Point-in-Time Count provides a biennial, one-night snapshot of the number of people experiencing certain types of homelessness in Multnomah County: people living unsheltered, in shelter or in transitional housing. Other data includes age, race/ethnicity, length of homelessness and disabling conditions. The Count ensures the JOHS remains eligible for federal funding and shapes policy and budget decisions.
Shelter Utilization Reports
Shelter utilization reports show the number of people newly served in shelters per quarter, the number of people served in shelters per year, utilization rates, and demographic information on people served — including data on race and ethnicity.
Built for Zero Progress Reports
Built for Zero is a national movement of more than 90 cities and counties — including Portland, Gresham and Multnomah County — working to measurably and equitably end homelessness with a data-driven approach. Its goal locally is to address chronic homelessness by achieving “functional zero,” a milestone reached when chronic homelessness is rare and brief.
JOHS Provider Classification, Compensation and Benefits Study
An evaluation of employee retention, job satisfaction and workforce stability among JOHS-funded agencies serving people experiencing homelessness.
