Securing SSDI or SSI
SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery, or SOAR, is a program to help people with disabilities become eligible for disability income benefit programs administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Individuals who are or could find themselves at risk of homelessness and have a serious mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder are a primary focus population for SOAR services.

Veterans Administration (VA) Benefits
VA disability compensation, or pay, offers monthly, tax-free payments to Veterans who got sick or injured while serving in the military and to Veterans whose service made an existing condition worse. Find out if you may qualify for these benefits by visiting the eligibility page for VA disability benefits.
Regain Meaningful Employment and Self-Sufficiency
Benefits counseling can help you understand how work will impact benefits as you envision a path to work. A common myth is that receiving benefits precludes people with disabilities from entering into employment. Visit our benefits counseling page to find a resource to fit your needs.
