disABILITY Services wins three-year accreditation from CARF
Today, California Human Development’s disABILITY Services division received an important and prestigious thumbs up from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)—an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services worldwide. CARF issued a three-year endorsement, saying “the achievement is an indication of your organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of persons served.” The finding is CHD’s 12th three-year accreditation since 1977 and is the highest possible level of CARF accreditation. It applies to CHD’s employment support and job development services for adults with disABILITIES, noting excellence in leadership, organizational standards, services provided, employee-client relationships and client satisfaction, among others. CARF accreditation is given only to those providers who deliver “highest quality services.” The accreditation follows a lengthy and rigorous application and review process completed in August.
