Rapid Deployment of a Homeless Response Framework

The communities of Houston and Corpus Christi quickly designed, developed, and implemented a technical framework to support the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.  This presentation included an overview on the challenges that were faced, followed by a discussion of how a services-oriented architecture (SOA) and integration with HMIS was leveraged to maximize the use of data to target the response.  Attendees were provided with a blueprint for how they might also respond to natural disasters, or other crises in their communities, using an integrated mix of open source and proprietary technologies.
