SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) helps states and communities promote wellness and recovery through increased access to Social Security disability benefits for eligible adults who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a serious mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a cooccurring substance use disorder. Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the SAMHSA SOAR Technical Assistance (TA) Center develops and provides systems planning, training, and technical assistance to support the implementation of SOAR nationwide. This guide serves to help implement SOAR into peer-run organizations.
