Helping agencies help people recover their id.

There are too many people who are homeless, precariously housed, or live on the margins of society. One of their biggest challenges is to attain official identification (birth certificates, health cards, SIN cards, etc.) without a fixed address. In addition, keeping identification is difficult for those who use the shelter system or are on the street, because they lack a secure place to store their ID and are subject to theft. ID is often necessary to access employment, housing, health care, and other essential services. Fortunately some community agencies help people to recover or store their ID. Northern Village is a web provider and software developer that is creating a service to help those agencies better manage ID data. This service will be called Access2ID.
