Clinic helps youth 18-23 get their birth certificates

The Homeless Advocacy Project and Philly Homes 4 Youth will sponsor a birth certificate clinic on Thursday, October 11 from 4:30-6pm at Valley Youth House, 1500 Sansom Street, 3rd Floor.

Birth certificates are often needed to receive medical assistance, housing and other public benefits, to obtain a Pennsyvania driver's or non-driver's license, for access to many public buildings, for general identification and many other purposes.  Young adults who attend this free clinic will meet with an advocate who will request birth certificates for them and their minor children free of charge.

This is a clinic for young adults age 18 to 23 and their children. We cannot request a birth certificate for youth who are under age 18. Birth certificates requested at this clinic may not be available under December - current processing time is 19 weeks.
