I.D. Rather Be Running 5km
Benefitting Homeless Project AZ

Loading Events

Join Coolwater Christian Church and Foothills Christian Church in our mission to impact homelessness in Arizona! 100% of the profits will be donated to Homeless I.D. Project AZ, a local organization based in downtown Phoenix.

Homeless ID Project is the only organization in Arizona with its sole mission to help men, women, and children experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives by obtaining their identification. We are focused and committed to reducing barriers to accessing employment, housing, and social services.

In 2016 alone, they provided over 9,670 services to 5,708 people experiencing homelessness. They are the only organization in the county to exclusively provide daily identification services.

Have you ever tried to get a job without an ID?
Sign a lease?
Enroll your child in school?
See a doctor?
or How about access social services?

All of the services that are meant to help people get off the streets, rebuild their lives, and regain their self-sufficiency are dependent on one thing, identification!

They are a unique organization that is on track to help over 7,000 individuals this year with the following services:
Procurement of birth certificates and supporting documents, necessary to obtain an Arizona ID or driver’s license
Purchase of Arizona ID or driver’s license​
Safe storage of birth certificates and other documents to prevent loss, theft or destruction
Referrals to rehabilitation programs, food and housing sources, medical assistance, and other agencies providing services to the poor and homeless in our community.”

Help us change lives and have fun while doing so!
