Improving healthcare and housing outcomes by removing a hidden barrier; lack of legal identification

Through a unique collaborative effort, a major but hidden barrier to positive healthcare and housing outcomes is being successfully addressed in Arizona. Eleven percent of adult Americans lack any form of government-issued photo identification. Lack of identification can have a negative impact on healthcare outcomes disproportionately affecting populations such as people of color, transgender people, low-income people, formerly incarcerated people, and more. This presentation will provide a format for other Health Care for the Homeless providers to access or create a similar program in their communities.

Speakers: Kim Despres, CEO, Circle the City; Rick Mitchell, Homeless ID Project
