NAFI RI is committed to providing an environment that is healthy and safe for both employees and clients alike. Employees are our most valuable asset and we recognize that for quality services to be provided, our employees must be well trained, have exceptional skills, be committed to helping others and should reflect the diverse populations with whom we work. We pride ourselves on creating program cultures that address the vicarious trauma that staff endure when working within the human service field. In keeping with our belief in the parallel process, program leaders understand the importance of caring for staff in the same way they expect staff to nurture clients.
NAFI RI prides itself on it’s record of staff retention. Currently, almost fifty percent of our staff have been with us for 10 years or more. We value and seek out staff with creative energy, a desire to learn, and a love for teaching.
