The Heading Home Ramsey (HHR) Data Dashboard is a collection of seven prioritized measures by the HHR Governing Board (GB). The dashboard is available on this HHR webpage and also the Ramsey County Open Data Portal webpage.

The 7 prioritized measures:

  • Measure 1: How many people are experiencing homelessness in Emergency Shelter/Street Outreach (ES/SO) Programs? 
  • Measure 2: How long are families and singles on the waiting list after they've been assessed for housing in Coordinated Entry (as of 2/2/2021)?
  • Measure 3: How many people in shelters are new to homelessness this year? How many have previously experienced homelessness?
  • Measure 4: How much of each type of housing is available across the continuum?
  • Measure 5: How many people are entering or leaving our housing projects?
  • Measure 6: Have we helpted increase the income of the people we have served?
  • Measure 7: How many people returned to homelessness within 6 months of leaving a program?

Every other year, Heading Home Ramsey (HHR) conduct a homeless needs assessment to identify gaps in our overall homeless response system. Assessments are conducted early in the (even) calendar years, with final results being published during summer. The needs and/or gaps identified in the system directs how HHR prioritizes services and new housing projects in Ramsey County, and for future funding of projects, such as Family Homeless Prevention and Assistance Program (FHPAP) funds.
