North American Family Institute Massachusetts Inc.
Past Recipient of Boston Globes Top 100 Places to Work in the Boston Area (2008).
NFI Massachusetts offers a highly diverse spectrum of community based programs for youths, adults and families. Those served include troubled adolescents with histories of abuse and neglect, serious emotional and/or behavioral problems, and delinquent youths in addition to adults with mental illness or mental retardation.
NFI Massachusetts is recognized for its innovative approaches to programming, such as its “Continuum of Care” model that bundles a variety of different services together in order to provide service recipients with a comprehensive, coordinated, and relatively seamless treatment experience. For example, a youth may initially enter our care by receiving a complete diagnostic assessment at NFI’s Community Intervention Program. From there, based on a full understanding of the youth and family’s unique needs, the youth may transition to longer term residential treatment at our North Crossing Program or return home to receive individualized family based services. Other youths may benefit from a foster care placement, a supportive after-school program or occasional access to respite services. Similarly, NFI’s Adult Services offer individuals many different levels of staff support and housing options. NFI’s flexible service model has the capacity to efficiently modify services as its clients’ needs change, ensuring the right combination of services at the right time and optimal treatment outcomes.
Our programs are supported by a highly committed, interdisciplinary staff comprised of clinicians, case managers, counselors, nurses, teachers and medical and/or psychiatric consultants who utilize a highly collaborative team approach to treatment.
NFI Massachusetts is proud of its 37-year track record of providing effective, high-quality services to people in need. The objective of all NFI Massachusetts programs is to assist individuals to achieve their maximum potential regardless of disability, to receive services in the least restrictive settings and to experience the full promise of community living.
