The Boston Coordinated Access System (CAS) project by the City of Boston's Department of Neighborhood Development matches homeless individuals to housing vacancies based on need. CAS works in conjunction with the HMIS Warehouse (https://github.com/greenriver/hmis-warehouse) to use HMIS data in finding matches.
The Open Path HMIS Warehouse (Warehouse) project was initiated by the City of Boston's Department of Neighborhood Development office to coordinate data across various HMIS installations and supply de-duplicated client information to the Boston CAS (https://github.com/greenriver/boston-cas).
Open Google Docs spreadsheets, local or remote XLSX, XLS, ODS, CSV (comma separated), TSV (tab separated), other delimited, fixed-width files, and shapefiles. Returns an Array of Arrays or Hashes, depending on whether there are headers.
