NAFI has been operating a network of residential and non-residential treatment programs in RI since 1989. The Network includes both juvenile justice and behavioral health programs, and has a long history of success in serving clients in the least restrictive environments.   With the addition of PLL (2010) and the acquisition of Enhanced Outpatient Services (EOS) in 2013, NAFI has expanded its home and community based counseling services.  Our  Programs provide a continuum of services that includes secure residential education, community based group homes, foster care, in-home, community and adult services. All Network programs use NAFI’s Normative Approach to build pro-social communities that are integrated in a variety of ways into their local communities, and are united in their beliefs that:


  • People can change
  • People have a desire to belong
  • We are all teachers and learners
  • Community is larger than the sum of the parts
  • Service to others is both healing and educational
