We took in an elderly man who was homeless after his wife passed his wallet was stolen and in order for him to get an State Id he must have a birth certificate but in order to get a copy of his birth certificate he must have a state ID He has been living with us for over a year and he is like family we feed and clothe him however he would like to have identification he cannot even get a copy of his social security card ,he would not be able to even fly on a plane, He has no living relatives and there is no reason to doubt he is his who he says he is he is a very honest person he is 66 years old. How can we help him obtain his identification

Hi, thank god for people like you. I have found myself homeless before. Just got real depressed after several devastating losses of family members, took me awhile but I am very much back on my feet. I am not familiar with your town but try homeless shelters or some kind of outreach program. They usually know of somebody that could help. I was in san diego and there was a place that helped people to get an id, birth certificate, ss card or all of them. It can be done.I believe the first step is getting the ss card. Good Luck to all of you. How does that saying go? We are only as good as the least of us. Most people are only a few steps away from being homeless.
