Disability Income Services
SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR)
SSI/SSDI, Outreach, Advocacy, and Recovery (SOAR) is an evidence-based approach to assisting qualifying households experiencing homelessness and living with a disabling condition in obtaining SSI/SSDI benefits.
Our SOAR-certified Housing Counselors provide case management to navigate the SSI/SSDI application process for households experiencing homelessness.
- Are you experiencing homelessness (sleeping outside, in a shelter, or other place not meant for human habitation) and living with a disabling condition?
- Are you interested in applying for disability income?
You may begin the application process for all of non-emergency homeless services by meeting with a Services Navigator at either HRDC location, contacting us by phone, or completing HRDC’s Request Support Form. Services Navigators are available on a first come, first serve basis anytime our offices are open.
Due to the time commitment required for this process, SOAR-certified case managers currently only have the capacity to assist up to two households at a time. If caseloads are full, your information will be added to a waiting list and you may receive a referral to another agency.
If you are a community provider, we are hoping to expand our capacity and support other community partners in becoming SOAR certified. Please contact Jenna Huey at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
