Vinfen is dedicated to creating innovative and genuine opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We achieve this by partnering with individuals, their families, their providers, their employers, and their communities. Vinfen’s person-centered approach is tailored to individual and family needs and circumstances. Services promote the opportunity for each person to receive specialized supports, which enable them to thrive, achieve their goals, and attain the highest level of independence.
Currently, we support more than 1,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in over 100 service settings located throughout eastern Massachusetts.
Vinfen’s primary form of teaching intervention for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities has been Positive Behavior Support, which we implemented in 2006 as one of the first organizations in Massachusetts to do so.
Vinfen also provides Long Term Services and Supports Community Partner Services to MassHealth enrollees with intellectual and developmental disabilities, behavioral health challenges, and brain injuries as a member of LTSS Care Partners.
