Service Point 4.0 Head of Household Data Quality Issue

There have been a few cases of individuals who have received data quality report errors when entering youth into a household. We are posting a PowerPoint that should help explain the correct procedure for entering Head of Household (HoH) data into HMIS. This PowerPoint will walk you through, step-by-step, for entering client household data along with screen shots for the process.
