What would you do if you had no way of identifying yourself?
HVSD staff too often meets veterans with NO identification! In many cases, this is due to theft or police raids on homeless encampments. IDs, Veteran VA Cards, DD214s (service records in the military), and birth certificates, along with personal items, end up in the trash. Without proper identification, our veterans are unable to obtain a cell phone, VA benefits, or social services.
There are real expenses associated with reestablishing this documentation; unfortunately, HVSD must absorb them. Our Identification and Document Reestablishment program covers the costs of these very important documents, enabling our veterans to take the first step to rebuild their lives.
