Going into 2020, none of us would have imagined we would be facing our first pandemic as an organization and as a global community, but here we are. With this comes a lot of uncertainty, specifically continued funding for IDignity.
One thing is for certain – once this pandemic comes to an end and we all return to our daily lives, the need for identification will be even greater. There will be numerous people looking for work, people who lost their job in the wake of the coronavirus and don’t have proper identification. Without that identification, finding employment will be nearly impossible. A former client, Trina, had this exact problem – her ID expired while she had a job, she lost her job, and when she went to find a new place to work, she couldn’t.
