Webinar - SOAR: A Reentry Tool for Individuals Involved in the Criminal Justice System

Wednesday Oct 24, 2018 - 03:00pm to 04:30pm EDT
Event Description: 

The Social Security Administration disability benefit programs – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – can provide income and health insurance benefits to support 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. SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) is a model that can help. This webinar will feature speakers who will share best practices for implementing SOAR in a county jail and state correctional system, as well as explore how SOAR implementation in criminal justice settings can be a strong reentry tool to increasing housing stability and promote post release success.
