Opening Doors Northwest Florida administers the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Agencies that serve the homeless in our area are encouraged to utilize our HMIS, as it helps reduce duplication of services. It also allows us to measure our area's effectiveness at meeting the needs of the homeless in Escambia and Santa Rosa. Agencies interested in using the local HMIS should contact the HMIS Department.
