What is the SSI/SSDI Program?
The SSI/SSDI Specialist provides assistance applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Applying for SSI and SSDI is an arduous process sometimes taking years before an approval is granted. However our Specialist has the experience and necessary tools to help achieve approvals at an expedited rate. This allows qualifying individuals who are severely disabled and homeless or about to be homeless, to get the financial assistance they need quickly.
To date, the SSI Ohio Project via Hope House has generated over $2 million through approved claims!
How will I be helped?
The SSI Ohio Specialist helps collect all essential information and assists with obtaining appointments for mental health and medical services when necessary. Joining individuals with a payee to help manage monthly funds and linkage to vital community resources helpful in meeting individual and family needs are also a priority.

- Age 18 or older
