Improving Human Services Through GIS
Authors: Gina Fonseca Crescioni, Karissa Giles
In two years, Comprehensive Life Resources has gone from a company with no GIS usage to implementing Survey123 and Web AppBuilder in three different programs: Homeless Outreach, RAIN for gang reduction, and MCIRT. Through GIS, they have been able to collect client information, monitor and analyze data about clients and resources, and share findings with partners. A service location finder has been created to help partners and clients find available human services across the city of Tacoma.
