Survey Request! What care coordination services are available for children?

Care Coordination in Montana Logo

The Montana Team of the National Care Coordination Academy partners with The Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities.  Please help us compile information about care coordination services available for children with complex care needs by completing the Care Coordination in Montana survey.

Our goal is to develop a resource guide for in-state service providers and enable them to provide their patients with seamless care throughout Montana. This survey also serves as a platform for clarification of terms and definitions surrounding "care coordination", "case management" and "targeted case management" for children with complex care needs.

Please take the survey on or before March 18th

Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, Vocational Rehabilitation and Blind Services and the Rural Institute are excited to bring you the award-winning Hearts of Glass documentary and an engaging panel discussion!


The documentary is a story of employment possibilities and community impact that is resonating with employers, job seekers, family members and service providers.

The event will open with a special welcome by the Montana Director of the Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) Adam Meier, and then there will be an interactive panel featuring speakers from the film, presenting organizations, and community partners.

Hearts of Glass follows the first 15 months of operation of Vertical Harvest (VH) based in Jackson, Wyoming — a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that provides meaningful, inclusive employment for people with disabilities. The documentary weaves the story of VH’s launch with the personal journeys of employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Plants and people grow together in this intimate portrait of innovation, inclusion and impact.
