The Arc of Vigo County awarded three-year CARF accreditation

We are pleased to announce that The Arc of Vigo County has been accredited for a period of three years for its: Community Employment Services: Employment Supports, Community Employment Services Job Development, Community Integration, Respite Services and Supported Living programs.

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 that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.

The Arc of Vigo County is a not-for-profit organization with offices at 11 Cherry Street, Terre Haute, IN 47807.  It has been providing services in the Terre Haute area since 1966.

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, the accrediting body establishes consumer focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
