Data Collection and Research

Since 2011 KMSA takes on innovative approach to data collection on people using its services. It uses electronic database based on ETHOS Typology and MPHASIS Core Variables on Homelessness to systematicly describe the population of service users (inhabitants of St. Lazarus shelter and training appartments as well as people contacted by the streetworker). KMPS took part in innovative project on data colection on homelessness which was implemented by the Fundation for Social Innovation and Research “Shipyard” in 2010 and 2011. Annual reports on service users are produced and published. All statements of KMPS are research based.
