SSI/SSDI Outreach and Access and Recovery

About SSI/SSDI Outreach and Access and Recovery

TTI’s clinical staff are trained and supported by our Consumer Benefits Coordinator in Supplemental Security Income (SSI) / Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR).  This national program is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to increase access to SSI/SSDI for eligible adults and children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and have a mental illness, medical impairment, and/or co-occurring substance use disorder.

“SOAR seeks to end homelessness through increased access to SSI/SSDI income supports, directly addressing SAMHSA’s assertion: ‘To recover, people need a safe stable place to live’.”
