Case Management in Kentucky

The Columbus Organization Appoints New Executive State Director in Kentucky

Since 2012, The Columbus Organization’s subsidiary, Commonwealth Case Management, has been committed to serving the citizens of Kentucky with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Through our caring services, the individuals and families we support have more choice, personal power, and control of their lives. We believe individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities should be valued and given the same opportunities to reach their potential as those without disabilities.

The Columbus Organization’s subsidiary, Commonwealth Case Management, provides these services statewide to individuals being supported through various waivers including the Supports for Community Living (SCL) and the Michelle P. Waiver (MPW).


Our experienced case managers demonstrate their person-centered approach by:

  • Listening
  • Using people first language
  • Encouraging self-advocacy
  • Supporting individuals to maintain and realize meaningful relationships, both at home and in the community.

Your collaborative case management success depends on the relationships and communication between all agencies sharing services. We demonstrate this belief by being responsive, supportive, dependable, and professional.
