Support for Administrators

Show the Way relies on the same technical framework as Counting Us – the most widely used mobile app designed specifically for the HUD Point in Time homeless count.
The command center that receives data from both Counting Us and Show the Way runs on AWS, is API driven, and supports the geo-spatial data management and reporting requirements of regions as large as the Texas Balance of State.

With a fully responsive design, the app can either be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play or fired up on http://ShowTheWay.org.
Our work has been vetted by Iain De Jong and Cindy Crain from Org Code and they are providing guidance throughout the ongoing development process. As managers of the largest HMIS data warehouse, we also have relationships with vendors, regional admins, and outreach providers that provide their feedback on their operational and reporting needs.
Show the Way relies on the same technical framework as Counting Us – the most widely used mobile app designed specifically for the HUD Point in Time homeless count. Counting Us was based on the HUD Point in Time Counting Tool that was field tested by LAHSA in 2013, and vetted by HUD staff and HUD TA providers to ensure that it met HUD’s strict data collection and security requirements.
