At our core, Simtech Solutions Inc. is a cause-driven technology services provider with a passion for developing innovative technologies to help people experiencing homelessness. This includes creating the first data warehouse in the US to support homeless research and evaluation. The research that was conducted helped to prove the efficacy of the Housing First approach and was recognized by HUD with an Advanced HMIS Data Users Award. Powered by HomelessData, the warehouse continues to help communities establish By Name Lists, prioritize clients for housing opportunities, provide Research tools in the form of multi-level dashboards, and streamline the annual funding competition with NOFA Rating and Ranking tools.
Our Counting Us mobile app is used by 50+ regions to conduct an accurate homeless census and provides coverage for thirty to forty percent of the census tracts in the US. The innovative use of this tech to support ongoing street outreach work in communities such as San Diego and Gulf Coast, FL has laid the groundwork for the development of Show The Way.
