There are different types of SGIA services in HMIS and each will fall under its own specified category. The link below includes a comprehensive list of service types based on the kind of service you provide to the client. You may provide multiple services that are listed in the same category and will enter these using the corresponding type. The Case/Care Management option is designed to encompass both categories.
