CARF International announced that Better Living Health and Community Services has been accredited for a period of three years for its community support service programs. The latest accreditation is the third consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has given to Better Living Health and Community Services.

By pursuing and achieving accreditation, Better Living Health and Community Services has demonstrated that it meets international standards for quality and is committed to pursuing excellence.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we approached our 2020 CARF Accreditation Survey quite differently by participating in a bridge survey option that involved a short and very high level peer review of our organizational policies, procedures and practices and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors that our programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.

CARF is an independent, non-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
