Good Friday afternoon everyone,
I hope all is well with you and your families. We do have some information to provide to you this afternoon that may be of interest for you.
Three-Year CARF Accreditation
As you may or may not know, the agency is due in February to complete our three-year accreditation with CARF. After careful review, we have requested a six-month extension for the accreditation survey. The pandemic has left us in a place where there is just too much uncertainty for us to properly prepare for a true and reflective survey of the organization. While not ideal, we feel it is the right decision for our organization at this time.
