Career Transitions is the contractor for Montana Pathways – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) for the Montana Department of Health and Human Services for Gallatin and Madison Counties.
The purpose of the TANF program is to support families to be stable, able to work, and financially secure.
The vision of the TANF program is that families will seek services and build a plan in partnership with their Client Advocate, achieve goals that meet or exceed the stability threshold on the Family Bridge Model, and will no longer be dependent on public assistance at the end of their journey.
Let’s meet our Client Advocates who provide support to those who need it.
Kami Cole grew up in Helena, Montana, moved to Bozeman, and received her Bachelors of Science in Sociology from Montana State University (MSU) in May 2019. She extensively studied family dynamics and social inequalities including poverty while working as a Family Support Assistant spending time each week with an adolescent in the community and helping them reach goals outlined by a case manager, self, and family. For the past 4 years she has been part of a research team investigating boundaries faced by families with children who have disabilities and their experiences with the professionals in the communities they live. She enjoys spending time outdoors four-wheeling and camping during the summer and ice fishing in the winter. She also enjoys reading and spending time with her family.
