SOAR Ohio Project & Ohio Statewide Independent Living Council

Community Living Project

The Social Security application process for SSI/SSDI is very complicated and difficult. This is often a barrier to people with disabilities who want to move out of an institution and into the community. The Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio has adopted the SOAR* model to make the SSI/SSDI application process easier and more successful. To further these efforts, the Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council will fund the Ohio SOAR project to provide training and technical assistance to 12 Ohio Centers for Independent Living, as well as other providers who support people with disabilities. The goal of the project is to train over 300 providers across the state to improve the SSI/SSDI application process success rate.
