The Texas Homeless Network (THN) works to provide solutions to end homelessness in Texas communities through education, resources, and advocacy. Currently, THN has VISTA members placed throughout the state working on capacity building and program development to assist communities in ending homelessness. This project will increase the number of case managers in Texas that are processing SOAR applications. The purpose of SOAR is to increase the accessibility and the number of clients receiving Medicaid or Medicare health coverage and benefits, including supportive housing, through SOAR (SSI/SSDI, Outreach, Access, and Recovery) applications submitted by trained case managers on their behalf.
