PARTNERS IN ADVOCACY

Join Vinfen to advocate on behalf of the people we serve, their families, and our hardworking, dedicated staff.

Advocacy is about educating and influencing policy makers at both the state and federal levels who determine policy and make budget decisions. It is also about taking actions to engage our workforce, supporters, people and families we serve, and communities to support policies and budgets which, support our mission.

Vinfen works in a variety of ways as a company and with provider and advocacy organizations to shape policy and resource decisions on all levels of government including with the administrative departments and legislatures of both Massachusetts and Connecticut.

We advocate for resources and policies supporting health, full community living, and employment for the people we serve and to support our employees who have dedicated their careers to helping people with mental health conditions, intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and behavioral health challenges.
