CARF International has awarded a three-year accreditation to Community Support Services, Inc.  for the following services:
Assertive Community Treatment
Case Management/Services Coordination
Community Housing
Court Treatment
Crisis Intervention
Day Treatment
Health Home
Integrated Behavioral Health/Primary Care
Outpatient Treatment
Supported Living
Community Employment Services (Employment Supports, Job Development)
Comprehensive Vocational Evaluation Services

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and demonstrates Community Support Services conformance to the CARF standards. To earn the accreditation, the agency participated in a rigorous peer review process and hosted a team of surveyors for a three-day on-site visit to demonstrate its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.  A typical CARF survey summary includes recommendations for improvements, which would then be addressed in a Quality Improvement Plan submitted by the agency. However, Community Support Services received no recommendations, indicating the agency is in compliance with all standards. CARF noted in its letter to the organization that less than 3 percent of service providers worldwide experience a CARF survey with no recommendations.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized by CARF for our efforts in delivering high quality services for the residents of our community” said Bob Stokes, President/CEO, Community Support Services President/CEO.   He offered, “The acknowledgement from CARF is a testament to the dedication of our staff and our leadership team.  We couldn’t be more honored to receive this accreditation.”  

CARF is an independent, nonprofit 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 International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
