        Macomb joins in homeless tracking

        County will share data with Oakland and Wayne on those who come =
in for services.

        By Jim Lynch / The Detroit News



              What's happening=20


              The Macomb Homeless Coalition is moving to bring the =
Homeless Management Information System online. The system allows =
homeless agencies to share information about the population they serve.

              =95 Earlier this month, the group hired Heather Uhley as =
part-time administrator for the system.

              =95 Today, the coalition will begin adding data from =
agencies around the county.=20


            =20

        MOUNT CLEMENS -- The effort to track Metro Detroit's homeless =
population is getting a boost with Macomb County joining Oakland and =
Wayne this month in an online system that links all agencies that =
provide services to the homeless.=20

        The Homeless Management Information System is designed, in part, =
to provide communities with a better sense of their problems.=20

        The Macomb Homeless Coalition recently hired Heather Uhley as a =
part-time administrator to help bring the county online. Today, =
participating Macomb County agencies will begin signing up.=20

        For Macomb County, the new effort comes during a particularly =
bad year in terms of homeless people who have died. So far in 2005, =
eight deaths have been reported, compared to five reported last year. In =
2001, two homeless people died.=20

        Joey Petras, 48, has fallen on hard times since April. He has =
been hospitalized three times and he has lost his job and his housing. =
On Thursday, Petras went to the Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter =
Team in Roseville to see what his options were.=20

        "I think that would be very valuable," he said of the tracking =
system.=20

        By sharing information between agencies, service providers such =
as Jimetta Lewis at the Macomb County shelter can more clearly see =
clients' situations -- where they've been before, what assistance =
they've received and what assistance they're eligible for.=20

        "All we'll have to do is push a couple of buttons, and we'll be =
able to see the gaps in the system," Lewis said.=20

        Carrie Fortune, coordinator for the Macomb Homeless Coalition, =
said she hopes to have all the county agencies that provide homeless =
assistance signed up by Feb. 1.=20


        You can reach Jim Lynch at (586) 468-0520 or jlynch@detnews.com.
