The organization says its board of directors considered multiple avenues before deciding to close. The organization plans to file for bankruptcy protection April 17.

The Department of Public Health and Human Services is ending contracts and reducing rates for providers such as Helena Industries in response to deep state budget cuts.



The organization’s clients will be transferred to the state.
