Earlier this month, Faith Mission in Brenham officially adopted the Texas Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), a case management resource utilized by over 60 providers across the state. HMIS enables providers like Faith Mission to better coordinate emergency assistance and care, while measuring their clients' progress over time toward self-sufficiency and stable housing.
Founded in 1985, Faith Mission is an ecumenical Christian-based nonprofit organization created to be a "central clearinghouse for assistance to the homeless and working poor" in Washington and surrounding counties. Their ongoing efforts include the provision of shelter, meals, medicine, clothing, household supplies, rent and utility assistance, as well as various counseling services.
I'd like to thank Executive Director JD Wells, Rev. Randy Wells and Ms. Pam Mossbarger for their dedication to help those in the community and participating in this month's HMIS training.
