Restoring Identity for Stability & Empowerment

We recover vital identity documents for our community. Hanging on to ID, birth certificates, and social security records when you are homeless can be extremely difficult. The risk of damage, theft, and loss is high. Once you have lost your documents, recovering them can be nearly impossible, since one form of documentation requires another, and another. Without vital ID, our community members cannot get a job, apply for subsidized housing, access vital healthcare, vote, or open a bank account.

We work with clients to recover and fund identity documents. We have built a formula and vital partnerships to make this work more efficient! During the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we also helped our clients access their Economic Impact Payments. Many in our community did not automatically receive payments due to not being recognized by the tax system. This stimulus recovery translated into millions of dollars for rent, family needs, cars, and more.

Here is our work, but the numbers:


Alabama State IDs/Driver Licenses Recovered since January 2021


Birth Certificates from across the United States Recovered since January 2021

Stimulus/Economic Impact Payment Recovery:
