SOAR (SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery)

SOAR, a SAMHSA best practice, increases access to Social Security disability benefits for people with behavioral health issues experiencing or at risk of homelessness.  Gaining access to these benefits can be very challenging for individuals experiencing or at risk for homelessness.  The challenge is even greater for those suffering with a mental illness and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.  SOAR assists this population with accessing these benefits.
