Vinfen currently partners with the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, Springfield College and Regis College to provide staff discounted tuition and grant opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate programs. These schools provide many options for human service employees such as degrees in Social Work, Counseling, ABA, Business and Public Health. These programs are designed for the working professional and provide flexibility including online and hybrid models. The Regis College benefit also extends to employees’ immediate families.

Vinfen financially supports direct care staff to receive their Certified Nursing Assistant certification (CNA).

CNAs provide a wide range of basic care to individuals who are unable to manage their needs alone, and it is an opportunity to explore any interest in a nursing degree. This program is open to any residential or day program direct care employee who has worked at Vinfen for 30 or more hours a week for at least six months. Vinfen will provide up to $1,700 for the program paid directly to the school so participants don’t need to worry about the cost of the program. Employees who complete the program then work internally with a recruiter to find a CNA position that works for them.
