Birth Certificates: 
A certified birth certificate is necessary for access to many services in our society, but the poor often do not have the means to pay for an official birth certificate. We complete the necessary paperwork to obtain one birth certificate for each family member, and we provide this service at no expense to the client, thanks to the United Way, which funds this program for us.

Having a birth certificate is necessary to access housing, food stamps, child support, disability, to enroll a child in school, and, and for identification purposes. We pay all costs of birth certificates to any of the 50 states. Costs range from $9-50, depending on the state. We also are able to do delayed birth certificates for people who were never issued one at their birth. In addition, we help people get a Georgia photo ID at no cost to them.

Georgia ID cards: 
Available to Chatham County residents whose Georgia ID has been lost or stolen. Client must bring a certified copy of their birth certificate, proof of their social security number, and two documents proving residency. 

Assistance with Medicaid and Food Stamp applications and renewals; housing applications and SSDI/SSI applications (new applicants only). Client must call to schedule an appointment.
