Focusing on Outcomes for Meaningful ChangeBuilt By Rescue Missions, For Missions & Faith-Based Shelters
Since 2010, MissionTracker has worked closely with gospel rescue missions, life transformation ministries, and other human services providers to develop a valuable suite of online tools with a focus on operations, outcomes, and outputs.
Our bottoms-up approach to building this software is a major differentiator, as we consistently build our product roadmap around the needs of homeless shelters, life transformation ministries, recovery centers, veterans shelters, and other human services providers.
Instead of focusing on overreaching HUD data collection standards, MissionTracker’s engineers and product developers focus on operational, in-the-trenches tools focused on empowering your intake staff, security officers, case managers, and program directors to get their day-to-day work done thoroughly and in a timely manner. To top it off, our comprehensive goal tracking and outcomes measurement modules keep your directors, board members, and other stakeholders (including donors) abreast of your organization’s progress, from “beds and bowls” provided to the number of individuals graduated from your recovery programs and of those, who were stably housed.
That all of that being said, ResidentTracker and ResidentTracker Pro have been built with HUD’s universal data elements in mind ensuring your organization can fulfill any obligations of being a great community collaborator by sharing HUD structured data while, at the same time, maintaining autonomy and independence of your data and software suite.
Now that’s what we call a win-win, and it's one of MissionTracker’s most important value propositions.

Why It Matters
Streamline Data Collection, Share Data, and Maintain Autonomy
Streamlining data collection, intake, post-intake, and program enrollment data is no easy task. Orange County Rescue Mission needed to accomplish all of this and more, due to taking on a special project of assisting the city of Tustin, CA.
With the help of ResidentTracker, they were successful in launching and maintaining a separate entity (and facility) to assist the city with managing their homeless population, all while meeting or exceeding the city's, and county’s, stringent data collection needs. When it came time to participate in the yearly HUD PIT count, MissionTracker responded with a customized PIT report to provide their partners using real-time data from ResidentTracker.
We love this story as it demonstrates MissionTracker’s commitment to providing strong data collection requirements (if needed) while still allowing Orange County Rescue Mission the autonomy to maintain their data and direction of their software needs - a winning combination.
