NAFI CT is committed to providing an environment that is healthy and safe for both employees and consumers alike. Employees are our most valuable asset and we recognize that for quality services to be provided, our employees must be well trained, have exceptional skills, be committed to helping others and should reflect the diverse populations with whom we work. We pride ourselves on creating program cultures that address the vicarious trauma that staff endure when working within the human service field. Self-care and knowledge of vicarious traumatization are at the forefront of ensuring that our staff maintain a healthy work-life balance in order for our clients to receive the highest quality of care. For this on-going initiative, NAFI CT is the recipient of the American Psychological Association’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award.
