ENGLEWOOD — Eric Hood has been without a valid state identification card for two years.

In June, the Englewood resident will have a chance to obtain a new one without leaving his South Side community.

On June 20 the Secretary of State’s Office will park its Mobile Driver Services Facility van in front of St. Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center, 326 West 64th St., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. so Hood and anyone else can renew or receive a driver’s license or state identification card.

“Now all I need is to come up with the money to get a state ID,” said Hood, 47. “I lost my driver’s license in 2000 for a DUI and have not been able to get to the Secretary of State’s office to get an ID.”

Derek Michaels, a spokesman for St. Bernard Hospital, said it partnered with the Secretary of State’s office to bring this service to Englewood to help both senior citizens and residents like Hood.
