SQUARES (Status Query and Response Exchange System) has arrived!

SQUARES gives users the ability to identify if someone is a Veteran, an essential first step that can lead to housing, benefits, health and mental health services. While SQUARES, by itself, cannot be used to establish eligibility for VA services, it should help facilitate access and coordination of services. To use SQUARES, you must register through the HMIS Homeless Repository database. Instructions on how to register and use SQUARES can be found in the training below.

* Please note that mp4 files can only be viewed with Windows Media Player 12 and VLC Player. Click below for the links to the players:
