NFI Massachusetts Inc.
Since 1987, NFI has effectively provided individual support services to adults with developmental disabilities and mental health issues in the North East Area, helping them develop independent living and community skills in supported residential settings of their own choosing. NFI has developed a flexible program that provides services tailored to each individual’s needs and preferences, based on the principles of empowerment, choice, building from strengths, and honoring dignity. There are 2 main components to this Program, providing both direct and indirect supports. Residential Support provides services on a long-term basis to individuals who live in their own or shared apartments. Staffing levels are according to individual need and may be provided up to 24-hours per day. The second component is Intensive Case Management, which serves individuals with more short-term needs who benefit from a periodic intensive influx of services such as assessments, treatment planning, advocacy and various other interventions. These services have been very effective with individuals who have had little success in more traditional service settings. Staffing in the Program is flexible to accommodate individual needs.
