Northern Family Health Society NFHS

The Northern Family Health Society (NFHS) has adopted the butterfly and the knot as their logo.  The Butterfly is a symbol of metamorphosis, change, and transformation throughout the different stages of life; the knot is symbolic of the umbilical cord, through which the nutrients of life are passed.  NFHS and our various programs identify the logo as symbolic for the “lifespan” of services continuing to be offered by the society.
