Alumnus helping the homeless obtain IDs
Jan 20, 2009 by DJ Turner | 0 Comments
Denver Seminary alumnus, Pedro Martínez (Diploma, '89), and his non-profit organization, HOPE, are working with a $50,000 grant from the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust to help provide ID's for homeless men and women in the Miami-Dade County area. Photo IDs help these men and women get jobs, attend school, and help many of them avoid jail sentences that come as a result of not having an ID. HOPE exists to improve living conditions for the homeless, and helping men and women "jump through the hoops" needed to obtain a legal ID is just one of the ways that happens.
