High-Risk Targeted Case Management Pilot Project
Alternatives, Inc. will improve behavioral health outcomes and recidivism in Billings by hiring two case managers to coordinate care for high-risk offenders, focusing on individuals discharged from Montana State Prison, Women’s Prison, and other secure correctional facilities throughout the state. The case managers will be embedded with probation and parole offices in Billings, ensuring a team-based approach to care. Over the course of the project, the case managers will coordinate care for up to 140 offenders and connect them to treatment and community support. Grant funds will be used to offset the onboarding of the case managers. Project partners include the Department of Corrections, Rimrock, RiverStone, and Billings Urban Indian Health and Wellness Center. The Department of Corrections is dedicating probation officers and space to ensure a team-based approach to working with offenders.
