Waiver Case Management

Effective May 1, 2016 we provide Waiver case management services in Hennepin county for all ages.

Waiver case managers provide case management services for individuals in any number of the following areas: health, medical, social, housing, employment, and education. The case management services includes the management of waiver money allocations and the reporting of services to the County as appropriate. Our case managers work directly with the individual and members of their team to create a person-centered plan while encouraging independence.

Services offered:
