At Vinfen, we transform lives by helping people with psychiatric conditions choose, get, and keep the employment that they want.
We believe that every person with a psychiatric condition who wants to work should get the support they need for success and satisfaction in a job for which they are well-matched. When a person expresses an interest in competitive employment, he or she is connected with a staff person who can help. Vinfen staff work with job candidates, other members of the candidate’s support team, and the business community in order to find the best match between the interests of the job seeker and the employers’ needs. Vinfen staff can support ongoing success either directly on the job or behind the scenes, at the job seeker’s discretion.
We help people by providing employment assistance that is integrated with other support services in most of our programs, including:
- Community Based Flexible Support
- Program for Assertive Community Treatment
- Recovery Learning Centers
- Young Adult Services
