Goodwill Achieves Three-Year CARF Accreditation
Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. has been informed by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitative Facilities (CARF) that it has been accredited for a period of three years for its Organizational Employment Services program and Employment Development Services program. Furthermore, this accreditation came with no recommendations from CARF regarding the organization or its programming. This is an extraordinary accomplishment as only 3 percent of CARF accredited organizations receive no recommendations.
This accreditation outcome, which represents the highest level of accreditation, is awarded to organizations that show substantial fulfillment of the standards established by CARF. As well, Goodwill demonstrated exemplary conformance to standards by developing a Crisis Communication Plan which clearly identifies the steps for the organization to follow when faced with a crisis. An organization receiving a three-year Accreditation outcome has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable. Further, an organization accredited for three years clearly indicates that present conditions represent an established pattern of total operations that is likely to be maintained or improved in the foreseeable future.
The latest action marks the seventh consecutive three-year Accreditation outcomes awarded to Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. by CARF, an international accrediting body.
CARF is an independent, not-for-profit accrediting body promoting quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Since 1966, CARF has established consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
