Information about Safe Harbors

Safe Harbors is King County's Web-based Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) used to measure the extent of homelessness in our community. Data collected is used to create statements of need to funders at the local, state and federal level through a variety of reports created from the information collected by our partner programs.

Safe Harbors is supported by the City of Seattle's Human Services Department, and is a joint project of the City, King County's Department of Community and Human Services, and United Way of King County. Safe Harbors is a key partner in the Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness in King County.

Safe Harbors was fully implemented in January 2007 and is being used in emergency shelters, transitional and permanent housing programs as well as supportive service and homeless prevention programs that receive public funding.
