Services

Napa County Self Sufficiency Services Division is issuing a Request for Proposals from qualified agencies/organizations to provide assistance in SSI/SSDI application submission by utilizing the SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) model to provide services to two-subsets of the department’s customers.

SOAR is a national program designed to increase access to the disability income benefit programs administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for eligible adults and children who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a serious mental illness, medical impairment, and/or co-occurring substance use disorder.

The purpose of this service is to assist Self Sufficiency Services customers in filing high-quality, complete applications for Social Security Income (SSI)/Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) that will lead to prevention in application delays and need for appeals. This service will help customers obtain steady benefits that can lead to improved stability and move towards self-sufficiency.

The two sub-sets of customers to be served are individuals that are participating in the following programs:

  • California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) Program – CalWORKs is a welfare program that gives cash aid and services to eligible needy California families. Families that apply and qualify for ongoing assistance receive money each month to help pay for housing, food, and other necessary expenses. This may include adults or children.
  • Housing and Disability Advocacy Program (HDAP) – HDAP was established to assist individuals experiencing homelessness who are likely eligible for disability benefits by providing advocacy for disability benefits as well as housing supports.
