Hosted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) SOAR TA Center in partnership with the SAMHSA GAINS Center
The Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefit programs – Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSI/SSDI) can provide income and health insurance benefits to support a healthy return to communities for previously incarcerated individuals who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a serious mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder. SOAR (SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery) is a model that can help, and this webinar will feature speakers who will share their best practices for implementing SOAR in a county jail, state correctional system, and explore how SOAR implementation in criminal justice settings can be a strong reentry tool to increasing housing stability and promoting post-release success.
