Since 1977

Individual Focus, Community Perspective
The National Center on Institutions and Alternatives (NCIA) takes an innovative approach to break the destructive cycle often associated with the human service and correctional systems. We provide individual care, concern, and treatment for adults and youth who have intellectual and emotional disabilities, and those involved in the criminal justice system.

Due to inclement weather on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, the NCIA Career Development Center and Business Services Contracts are closed [Essential Contracts excluded].  

Staff who work at CDP or Business Services job coaches will have the option of reassignment or the use of liberal leave. Staff interested in reassignment will be placed in a residential site (if a position is available) to provide supervision and supports to the residents in this household. Staff must call the Division Manager assigned to the home where they desire to work for reassignment. When the Career Development Program Building is listed as closed to participants or business services contracts are closed, staff must contact their supervisor at least 1 hour prior to their scheduled work time to inform their supervisor if they will be utilizing liberal leave or pursuing reassignment.
