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. “The ROE program demonstrates the embodiment of person-centered and customized employment principles…” stated the survey report compiled by CARF.
This accreditation outcome, which represents the highest level of accreditation, is awarded to organizations that show substantial fulfillment of the standards established by CARF. In addition, Goodwill was commended for its efforts to identify and address the social service needs of the area it serves and efficiently and effectively uses revenue generated by its retail stores to enhance those efforts to meet the needs of the community. 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 eighth consecutive three-year Accreditation outcomes awarded to Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. by CARF, an international accrediting body.
