This special project is designed to assist low-income, disabled, homeless and elderly Coloradans seeking documentation of their identity, immigration, or citizenship status in order to obtain healthcare, public benefits, housing, transportation, employment and secure other essential human rights. Project activities include: representation of individual clients needing assistance in complex cases; coordination of advocacy efforts including legislative, administrative and litigation approaches; technical assistance and community education involving identification issues; and management of a supplemental document fund for individuals and nonprofits to pay needed document fees.

Check out this video from the Denver’s Road Home-Project Homeless Connect 2013. Susan Tattershall, of the ID Project, shares her knowledge about getting IDs and enthusiasm for helping people.


Extended Services and Direct Representation

If you have tried to get an ID and been unsuccessful, we may be able to help you. We interview new clients every Wednesday morning at 8:30 at Colorado Legal Services. Our office is located at 1905 Sherman Street (corner of 19th and Sherman), Denver, Colorado 80203. Check-in is on the 6th floor. Please bring any documents you already have so we can review them and determine where in the process your case is. Space is limited, so arriving early is encouraged. Residents outside of the Denver metro may visit any Colorado Legal Services office to inquire about opening an ID case.
