The Tampa Bay Information Network (TBIN) is a centralized private and secure web-based database for basic needs health and human service providers to enter, manage and share client information electronically. TBIN is the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for Pinellas County. 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares is the HMIS Lead Agency for Pinellas County and provides all training, technical support, system performance outcome reporting, and data quality monitoring on behalf of the Homeless Continuum of Care (CoC).
As a “best practice”, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development mandated project, the TBIN program is an integral part of the Pinellas County’s Continuum of Care directed by the Pinellas Homeless Leadership Board. TBIN has been operated by 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares for 10 years.
