SOARing in Wyoming

Wyoming’s SOAR initiative is led by the Wyoming Department of Health, Behavioral Health Division.  It aims to increase access to the disability income benefit programs administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for eligible adults who are homeless or who are at risk of homelessness and have a mental illness and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.

Strong partnerships are a crucial aspect of the SOAR process within Wyoming and we are very fortunate to have such committed partnerships with SSA and Disability Determination Services (DDS), many community providers and other state agencies.  Without these partnerships, we would not be able to implement the SOAR initiative so effectively.

Expectations of Participation in SOAR

Only those individuals who have completed the SOAR Online Course can submit SOAR applications. Anyone may take the SOAR Online Course. The Wyoming SOAR program focuses on individuals who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness. The SOAR process can also be used to serve anyone in Wyoming who is eligible to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. For more information, please email the Wyoming SOAR State Team Lead (contact info above).

The Behavioral Health Division contracts with PATH providers and requires a SOAR trained person to be on staff.  The PATH provider must meet deliverables that require a specific number of SOAR applications be completed for participants receiving services under the PATH Program. A PATH provider may be able to assist you or help you find another person trained in SOAR. 

Expectations of SOAR-trained Caseworkers

We ask that Wyoming SOAR caseworkers do not charge fees to the clients they are assisting. SOAR applicants will need their full benefits to obtain and move into housing, pay for medical care, etc.

Outcomes Tracking

The Wyoming SOAR program utilizes the SOAR Online Application Tracking (OAT) system to report outcomes.  If we don't report our work to the OAT system, your hard work won't be recognized when the SOAR TA Center publishes their annual report.
