Homeless ID Project – Providing Identification Replacement to Empower Individuals to end their Homelessness.

About The Homeless ID Project 

The mission of Homeless ID Project is to empower individuals and families to end their homelessness and rebuild their lives by providing the critical first step of identification replacement services.


Our vision is to eliminate barriers to obtaining Identification documents across America

In November of 1987, the Rev. Gerald Roseberry spent a month living among the homeless in downtown Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. He chose to do this so he could understand the plight of the homeless and identify how his church could best assist the homeless community. While assuming the identity of someone experiencing homelessness, Rev. Roseberry noted that the lack of personal identification documents was a serious impediment, preventing the homeless from accessing services to aid them in regaining their self-sufficiency. As a result of his month of self-imposed homelessness, Reverend Gerald Roseberry founded the Ecumenical Chaplaincy for the Homeless in 1988.

Belief Statement

We believe that a person’s ability to get a piece of paper or plastic card should not be what stops them from ending their homelessness.
