CARF International is a private, non-profit organization which promotes the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process. The goal is continuous improvement of services which center on improving the lives of persons served. Each CARF accredited organization is reviewed every three years. Standards, are current and field driven and reviewed by peer consultants who work in the same type of organizations that they are reviewing. On March 6-8, CLO was visited by 2 surveyors who reviewed all business practices ( Leadership, Health and Safety, Human Resources, Finance, Strategic Planning, Accessibility, Technology, Performance Measurement and Management, Input from Persons Served, Legal Requirements and Risk Management) and everything related to program – Medications, Program Service & Structure, Individual-Centered Program Design and Delivery as well as our specific programs – Community Housing, Community Integration (the Alcott Center) and Supported Living.
I am happy to report that Community Living Options received ZERO RECOMMENDATIONS. In fact, CLO has received zero recommendations during 6 of the last 8 surveys. This is all the more remarkable given only 3% of the organizations receive 0 recommendations. CARF conducts more than 2800 surveys a year.
We could not achieve this milestone without the hard work of each and every employee of CLO. From Support Staff to Executive Director to Board of Directors, we take the responsibilities of service to the people we support seriously, and it shows.
