In 2017, Trail Association for Community Living received a 3 year Accreditation!
Who is CARF? CARF = Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities
The mission of CARF is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of persons served.
How CARF Accreditation is achieved:
Achieving accreditation requires a service provider to commit to quality improvement, focus on the unique needs of each person the provider serves, and monitor the results of services.
A service provider begins the accreditation process with an internal examination of its program and business practices. Then the provider requests an on-site survey that will be conducted by a team of expert practitioners selected by CARF. During the survey, the provider must demonstrate that it conforms to a series of rigorous and internationally recognized CARF standards.
Based on the results of the survey, CARF prepares a written report of the provider’s strengths and areas for improvement. If a provider has sufficiently demonstrated its conformance to the standards, it earns CARF accreditation.
Big thanks to the CARF Accreditation team who visited Trail in April 2017 and recognized TACL as a service provider worthy of a Three year Accreditation.
