Project Term: 12 months; 2017-2018
Grant Amount: $50,000
This project will fund an onsite licensed clinical social worker/licensed addictions counselor (LCSW/LAC) for transitional women’s housing program. The program currently serves women with co-occurring substance abuse and mental disorders who have been released from incarceration and/or treatment and are at moderate-to-high risk for re-incarceration. The applicant currently serves 26 women and their children in a dorm-style, trauma-informed, sober-living transitional housing program. Funding will allow the applicant to apply for Montana’s first licensed, level three sober living group home serving women and their children, which will allow them to bill for and provide a range of behavioral and substance use disorder treatment services.
