The SOAR model, developed by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is used to train case managers in completing and submitting applications for SSI/SSDI to maximize benefits access and employment support for individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
Providers/Care Mangers can enroll in a free, self-paced SOAR online course to learn how to better assist individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness to apply for SSI/SSDI through this link.
