Homeless identification cards are good for one year and must be issued in the county where you reside. To obtain an homeless identification card, you must show an original or certified birth certificate, Social Security Card (cannot be laminated) or W-2 Wage and Tax Statement or 1099 (most recently issued; full SS number displayed; not handwritten), and proof of address (a signed letter from a homeless shelter, health care facility, or social service agency currently providing the person treatment or services and attesting that the person is a resident of Kentucky) and marriage license, if applicable. Applicants under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the application. Guardianship papers are required. We cannot accept laminated or photocopied documents.
All names on the documentation must match.
