SOAR Webinar: SOAR Orientation for Native Communities

This webinar, held on January 13, 2021, discussed how Native communities can implement and benefit from SOAR.


Beginning in 2020, the SAMHSA SOAR TA Center has been expanding its efforts to engage with and inspire urban, rural, and reservation-based Native communities and organizations to take part in the SOAR initiative. Through specialized, culturally appropriate training and technical assistance, we will continue to enhance these services across Indian Country.

On this one-hour orientation, we discuss the SOAR model, review how to become a SOAR-trained provider, and highlight how the SOAR approach can help providers in Native communities and organizations submit complete and high-quality SSI/SSDI applications. This is recommended for everyone who has a stake in supporting Native adults and children experiencing or at risk of homelessness, including representatives from Native communities, organizations serving Native communities, and providers working in regions with large Native populations.
