SOAR Success at Park Center in Nashville

The following SOAR success story was submitted by Christy Spangler, SOAR State Team Lead, Tennessee.

Park Center received a referral for someone who had previously been through their SOAR program and had received an approval back in 2010. He was incarcerated in 2016, which caused him to lose his benefits. When the referral was made, he was staying with his sister but was told he needed to move out soon. Park Center worked diligently to get his application resubmitted. The SOAR specialist was able to get him a mental status exam completed as the last piece needed for his claim. He was approved! He is now able to stay with friends since he has an income and is working with the outreach team to get needed documents for housing navigation. He is hopeful that he will be able to find a place to call his own soon!
