CARF International announced that Lambs Farm has been accredited for a period of three years for the following programs: Community Housing, Community Integration, Community Employment Services – Job Development, Community Employment Services – Employment Supports, Organizational Employment Services and Supported Living. The latest accreditation is the twelfth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to Lambs Farm.
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. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
“This achievement is due to an exceptional staff of individuals who have a genuine commitment to and passion for the mission of Lambs Farm,” said Dianne Yaconetti, Lambs Farm President and CEO.
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.
