San Francisco’s New Tracking Tool Follows Every Homeless Resident in Real-Time

The Infinite Brief
San Francisco is launching a high-tech platform to identify every homeless resident and his or her level of need.

The new system intends to track the health, housing, jail, and counseling history of every homeless person in the city.

The old method spanned 15 different databases across multiple agencies, allowing homeless residents to slip through the cracks.

The new solution — known as ONE System (Online Navigation and Entry System) — aggregates this data into a single platform.

The final product allows homeless outreach professionals to log in to an app and view the state of homelessness in the city in real time.
