NSV Radio #4 Workforce Series's Story

Understanding SOAR Benefits at N Street Village

In the fourth episode of the “NSV Radio: Voices of the Village” podcast, Vocational Center Manager Matt LaBorde speaks with Chaquita Goode, SOAR Benefits Counselor for N Street Village. This conversation breaks down what SOAR (SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery) is and how the process works for seeking benefits for clients.

Listen to the episode

I like to sit down with people and ask them why they feel they should get benefits because some people apply for benefits for the wrong reasons … I try my best to explain why they should be applying for benefits. Do you check off “yes” for these reasons, like a question would be, what type of work do you do and how much do you get paid for this type of work? So I go through the process and hear their story and see if I can help them.
