Whether you’re documented, undocumented, homeless, or otherwise, you’ll be able to get an ID card in South Bend.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg joined La Casa de Amistad and others Thursday to launch the “SB ID Program (South Bend Community Resident Card Program).”
The SB ID program is designed for populations whose residents have difficulty obtaining the usual forms of photo identification. It can be used to help pick kids up from school, get prescriptions, and order transcripts from a college or university.
SF Global of Oakland, CA will partner with La Casa de Amistad to handle the verification for the ID cards. The cards themselves will feature the new South Bend flag, your picture, your address, and your organ donor status.
Cards will cost $25 for most residents. For seniors and kids, it’s $20.
The program starts in January. To obtain an ID card at that point, you can call La Casa at 574-233-2120 to schedule an appointment.
