Expectations of Participation in SOAR

Oregon utilizes the SOAR Online Course to train service providers to utilize the SOAR model to assist with SSI/SSDI applications for adults and SSI applications for children. The SOAR Online Course, which is administered by the SAMHSA SOAR TA Center, is provided at no cost, is self-paced, and can be started at any time. Before beginning the SOAR Online Course, it is recommended that service providers and their supervisors review the “Getting Involved with SOAR” document.

Outcomes Tracking

SOAR-trained service providers in Oregon utilize the SOAR Online Application Tracking (OAT) system to track SOAR outcomes statewide. If you are already SOAR-trained in Oregon, please register for an OAT account and track your SOAR-assisted SSI and/or SSDI outcomes in this system.
