Does an individual have to be homeless for SOAR to file for them? in topic What is SOAR

Answer

SOAR is a model developed to help those who are experiencing or at-risk for homelessness, so they don’t need to fit the literal definition of homeless. At-risk for homelessness can include those who are in transitional housing, couch-surfing, exiting jails/institutions without somewhere to live, and those in permanent supportive housing who are entirely supported by grant funding.

Our Definitions of Homelessness page has further clarification on the definitions used by SOAR and SSA.
