MONTANA – AWARE is expanding case management services after being awarded a contract for the Severe Disabling Mental Illness (SDMI) Home and Community Based (HCBS) Waiver Program in 10 Regions across Montana. Through the program, AWARE will be able to serve an additional 400-750 people.

This program will primarily serve people age 18 or older who have been involuntarily committed to the Montana State Hospital or the Montana Mental Health Nursing Care Center.

Case managers assess, coordinate, and assure delivery of services and supports. They work in partnership with the people in their care, service staff, and significant others (i.e., family members) to create a Person Centered Recovery Plan (PCRP) that enables people to remain at home, in the community, rather than an institution.

AWARE is now hiring for the Case Management Teams, including Lead Clinical Therapists and Targeted Case Managers in order to support the expansion of services. AWARE is proud to offer a collaborative team environment with great benefits including paid personal, vacation and sick leave, retirement, insurance, tuition advancement, professional development and training and a $1,000 sign-on bonus in addition to a flexible work schedule. If you’d like to join an exceptional team and make a difference in the lives of individuals, please visit

AWARE, who’s mission is to help people live independent lives, has a long-standing history of providing top quality case management services in the state of Montana. The organization provides case management for youth and adults in both mental health and developmental disabilities services. In 1991, AWARE was one of the first private providers to begin offering case management for people with developmental disabilities. Since then, AWARE has expanded and now delivers case management to thousands of people across Montana.
