An Assurance of Quality

CARF International is an independent, nonprofit organization that surveys and accredits health and human services providers worldwide. A service or program that is CARF accredited has passed an in-depth on-site review and has demonstrated substantial conformance to internationally recognized standards for quality.

What does this mean for you?

  • People we serve and their families can look for organizations that are accredited as a sign of quality when looking for services.

  • Accreditation is evidence to persons served that an organization has demonstrated its commitment to encouraging feedback, continuously improving services, enhancing performance, and managing risk.

  • Persons served and their families can be confident that services will be focused on their unique needs.
