For individuals with disabilities who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, lack of stable income can mean the difference between housing and living on the streets. This webinar will introduce the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) latest issue brief "Housing Access and Stability with SOAR." You will hear from three providers who have successfully integrated SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) and Housing First. You will learn how these programs obtained funding, engaged housing providers, and created an effective and lasting SOAR initiative!
This webinar is recommended for SOAR State Leads, Local Leads, Coordinators, SOAR Providers, homeless service providers, housing support specialists, and individuals who would like more information on how to connect SOAR and housing.
