SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS/SOAR ADVOCACY
The Social Security Administration offers two benefit programs through which individuals who are disabled and unable to work may receive payments: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). We offer assistance to individuals with the application process, appeals, and benefit maintenance. Our agency contracts with the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) to supply these services at no fee for individuals receiving specific Minnesota state aid. Additionally through our contract with DHS, we provide SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) advocacy. SOAR is a program designed to increase access to SSI/SSDI for eligible adults who are experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of homelessness, and have a mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder. If you do not qualify under either of these programs, our agency can still assist you for a fee. Please click here to learn more.
We provide information and education about affordable housing options in Minnesota, such as the Section 8 subsidized and voucher program. This includes assisting individuals with the housing search process, guiding individuals through affordable housing applications, and providing information about landlord-tenant rights and responsibilities.
