Identification Documentation is essential for persons experiencing homelessness. Stewpot caseworkers can order school records, census reports, birth certificates and other vital records to help clients obtain identification documentation.
It is often essential for caseworkers to become involved in the complicated state identification processes for individuals to establish legal identity. This includes ordering school records, census reports, birth certificates and other vital records.
Identification documentation is the first step toward overcoming the barrier of homelessness, and The Stewpot excels by providing documentation assistance to more than 6000 persons annually, which is essential for jobs and housing.
More than 24,780 Stewpot identifications have been issued to the homeless of our community, often the only source of information for next of kin information.
