(Bangor, Maine) June 5, 2018- Links Web Design is proud to announce the launch of a new website for KFI Maine. They provide support and services to individuals with disabilities. Their administrative office is in Millinocket, with branch offices in Bangor, Lincoln, and Portland.
KFI is an acronym for Katahdin Friends, Incorporated. Their original services and buildings were located in northern Penobscot County in the shadow of magnificent Mt. Katahdin. The agency has undergone a number of name changes throughout the years and is now most well-known by simply its initials, KFI.
Founded over 50 years ago as a school for the area’s children with intellectual disabilities, KFI has changed and expanded to become a regional provider of services to people with disabilities, recognized and awarded for excellence. Forty years ago the emphasis was keeping those with severe disabilities out of institutions; now the effort is in helping people with disabilities become active members of their communities, to live, work and socialize where and how other members of the community do. The transition has been a startling and even revolutionary shift of attitude and service delivery.
KFI is committed to assisting individuals with disabilities to exercise their choices resulting in growth and personal independence. We will assist each person to become productive and involved in the community in a way that satisfies and enriches both the individual and the community. The personal supports which make this possible will be provided in the most integrated, efficient, compassionate and least intrusive manner available.
