The SAMHSA SOAR TA Center has worked to address the barriers to equity in SOAR implementation with the development of resources, tools, and training. For this webinar, SOAR Leaders will discuss how these resources have been used to promote equity and reduce the impact of implicit basis in the implementation of SOAR work within their agencies. SOAR State Leads will discuss the integration of resources in their work and steps they have taken to ensure that diverse groups are equitably accessing services. Panelists will also share how community demographics (race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, and justice involvement) impact access to SOAR programs and present strategies for recognizing and reaching individuals that are underserved. SAMHSA SOAR TA Center staff will share a brief summary of the equity-focused SOAR products and tools designed to support SOAR initiatives in their efforts to achieve equity and inclusion in program access and participation. Finally, staff of the SAMHSA-funded Homeless and Housing Resource Center (HHRC) will share how equity is integrated into their resources and trainings for housing and health professionals.
