SOAR is more than just a training model. To be successful, SOAR programs must also focus on building strong relationships with SSA, DDS, the medical community and others.  SOAR providers who focus on such collaborations report more successful SOAR outcomes.  Grab some hot chocolate, coffee, or a cup of tea, and join us for a series of three webinars  to hear stories from SOAR communities, SSA and DDS specialists, and a medical provider on how they have improved SOAR applications by building relationships of mutual respect and trust in order to accomplish a great deal of hope for our SOAR applicants.

This webinar series is recommended for SOAR State Leads, Local Leads, SOAR Provid
