Get ready for...
...A celebration of the transformational and enduring story that is NFI North Children and Family Services in Maine and New Hampshire.
In the early 2000s, NFI North began hosting its Empowerment Awards, its signature community event. Since then, the Annual Luncheon has become our most anticipated celebration where we recognize families and individuals who, with the help of NFI services, have overcome obstacles to reach important personal goals.
We offer the most effective evidence-based programs and services, and we know it's the belief, born of the trust built through personal relationships and the values of respect, empowerment and support, that makes the real difference in the lives of the people we serve.
Belief in the strength of our mission and the Agency's key values has been so important for our organization since its inception 30 years ago and continued to be as we found ourselves tested by the pandemic. During the past two years NFI North held tight to our core values, the agency's mission and the strength and resilience of our staff and the people we serve.
The results have been remarkable.
NFI North's 19th Annual Empowerment Awards.
The families and individuals awarded the Empowerment Award receive a grant designed to help them continue on their path of success. Past scholarships have included college tuition, tools to support trade schools, vehicle repairs, family trips for children with serious illnesses and more. These grants are highly customized to provide the right support at the right time for the individual or family and serve as recognition for all the work they have achieved in overcoming the challenges they faced.
Our annual Empowership Awards serves to strengthen community ties and spread the values of community, empowerment, and inclusion. Our team is honored to champion communities throughout Maine and New Hampshire and we hope you’ll join us in 2023.
