Case Manager-CADI & DD
Case Management in disability services is rewarding, fast-paced, and challenging. Hammer strives to provide extensive training and consistent support to our case managers so that they can successfully provide high-quality support to individuals with a variety of needs.
We are growing! Hammer recently expanded our supervisory team so that we can grow our case management department and continue to support more people receiving disability services in the State of Minnesota. We contract our work with Hennepin County and provide CADI and DD Case Management services.
Case Managers provide service coordination to individuals with various disabilities, needs, and backgrounds. Individuals receiving CADI services primarily live with mental health and physical health conditions that impact their daily life while individuals receiving DD services live with developmental disabilities or other conditions that have similar impact on their daily lives such as Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many of the folks we support have a combination of these needs and they all have a variety of skills and preferences that make them unique.
Case Managers are vital to helping people with disabilities and their families find their way through the maze of the social service system while promoting self-determination and a person-centered approach.
Case Managers help to identify goals, needs, and preferences then coordinate with service providers to meet these needs. Case Managers maintain a written plan for everyone, manage payment authorization for service providers, and find resources to meet the unique needs of everyone.
This role requires daily documentation of all work as well as in-person visits to the homes of people you support. Hammer providers Hennepin County Case Management and most clients live within the metro area.

- Hourly rather than Salary: At Hammer, we keep our Case Management positions hourly to encourage a healthy work-life balance. It is important to us that our staff work their hours and then have a cut off to be done at the end of the week.

This unique opportunity allows staff a more hands-on work that many of our staff enjoy complimenting the office work of their case management role.
- Remote work: Our case management team has flexible remote work policy. We have office space available in Wayzata and hold occasional in-person staff meetings and fun events. Staff can choose their location of work if they are able to get their tasks done and remain accessible for consultation and supervision. Hammer provides a computer, work cell phone, computer monitor, etc. to ensure a successful work set up whether staff are in the office or remote. Our team heavily relies on Microsoft Teams to connect virtually through chat, video call, and group meetings regardless of location.

We also have started a Mentorship and Support program where staff can earn bonuses based on additional responsibilities, they take on to support their peers and the department.
