You won't believe the hoops that had to be jumped through to help help a homeless man secure his birth certificate and photo ID after 14 years of living on the streets with no identity.

Jodi has been working with the homeless community of Boise for more than nine years. In her role as the Development and Co-Director of the Interfaith Sanctuary, she has fashioned events to fundraise for the cause, created visual pieces to help educate the Boise community on the challenges faced by the homeless, and stood in the trenches of the tent city, Cooper Court.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
