Percent of Adults Exiting Shelter Receiving SSI or SSDI Benefits
(by year and CoC participation in SOAR training)

Note: A paired samples t-test was conducted to examine the difference between 2008 and 2009 disability benefit enrollment rates among homeless adults exiting the Supportive Housing Program, the Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation for Single Room Occupancy Dwellings Program, or Shelter Plus Care. There was only a significant effect for the non-participating CoC group, t(147) = -2.29, p = .023.
