Who are we?
NFI North came together at a time when people struggling with mental illness or behavioral problems were institutionalized. As a result of this widespread practice, people's lives and futures were adversely affected. Today, stigma and discrimination still exist—but as millions of us raise our voices, harmful misconceptions are beginning to fall.
NFI North believes that people thrive best in their own home and community; as a result, we provide services that empower and inspire people to reach their full potential. We build supports around individuals so they can live successfully in their own homes and community.
NFI North provides an array of services across Maine and New Hampshire. The agency is an accredited, well-recognized, high quality, nonprofit organization whose focus is on helping people help themselves. We accomplish this by providing specialized education, counseling, supported employment, care management, foster care, residential services, as well as many other forms of care.
