Description

NFI’s Community Based Services (CBS) reintegrates court-involved youth into their communities after being committed to the Department of Youth Services on various charges. CBS youth have completed their treatment phase and are returning home. With district offices in Lawrence, Haverhill, Lynn and Lowell, NFI staff work in collaboration with DYS Caseworkers to coordinate and deliver services and interventions designed to provide optimal support to ensure each youth’s future success in the community.

Key areas of focus include housing, food, clothing, medical and behavioral health needs, and educational and vocational needs including Pre-HiSET, HiSET (GED) and individual tutoring. In addition, youth and their families are introduced to services such as behavior therapy, job programs, healthy social outlets and community service opportunities.

Through these combined efforts of rehabilitation and community integration, the program’s objective is to make a lasting impact on the lives of the youth we serve, effecting positive change on each youth, their families and their communities.

The Youth Service Coordinator (YSC) works closely with the Haverhill DYS Casework team to support youth with successful reunification. Support is provided through consistent supervision of youth on site and in the community. The YSC establishes and maintains relationships with local community-based organizations and providers to meet the Individualized treatment needs of youth. Duties include home visits, transportation of youth to appointments and the planning and execution of recreational activities.

Flexibility after 5PM is expected on occasion along with 11-15 weekend hours per year.
