Holy Ground is dedicated to caring for Houston's neediest- both physically and spiritually.

Operation I.D.
Identification Assistance

Tuesday & Thursday 9:00 am to 11:30 am

Operation ID is an outreach program that helps individuals meet the costs and navigate the difficulties of obtaining valid identification for the purposes of odtaining employment and housing. With the help of trained volunteers and agency resources we are able to help many less fortunate in an impactful and unique way.

Operation ID has been providing assistance to disadvantaged Houstonian's for over 30 years in order that they may obtain their legal identification documents. We receive referrals from over 30 local agencies and help 7000 clients annually. OpID assists the homeless, the indigents and those recently released from prison to regain the documentation necessary to verify their identity so that they may begin to transition back into society. Without a birth certificate and photo ID it is not possible to obtain a job, housing, open credit, social services, enroll children in school or open a bank account. Volunteers at Operation ID interview clients and help them obtain these documents and any others necessary to accomplish that.
