SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) is a program designed to increase access to SSI/SSDI for eligible adults who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.
The Nevada SOAR project aims to fulfill objectives outlined in the Nevada Interagency Council on Homelessness’ (NVICH) 2015 Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. The NVICH has determined SOAR to be an essential resource for providing effective wraparound services to those affected by homelessness. Under this plan, strategies include statewide training and collaboration amongst all 3 state Continua of Care and their respective service providers to improve the quality of service delivery.
Although a statewide initiative, the Nevada SOAR project is currently housed within Clark County Social Service, under the Southern Nevada Continuum of Care. Funding is provided by the CABHI (Cooperative Agreement to Benefit Homeless Individuals) state grant.
Ambrosia Crump is the State SOAR Coordinator and provides statewide training, outcome reporting, and technical assistance. Ambrosia can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 702-455-3646.
