THRIVE Social Services Society is proud to announce that it has been awarded a three-year accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). The accreditation, which is effective until March 31, 2026, applies to the programs and services provided by the organization. This is the agency's 7th CARF accreditation.
The accredited programs and services include Employment Services, Children and Youth with Support Needs, Mental Health Outreach Team, Youth Services, Community Living Services, and Day Program.
This prestigious accreditation demonstrates THRIVE Social Services Society's commitment to providing high-quality services to the individuals it serves. The accreditation report highlights the organization's strengths and offers consultation and recommendations for continuous improvement.
An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has undergone a rigorous peer review process. During an on-site visit, it has demonstrated to a team of surveyors its commitment to offering measurable, accountable programs and services of the highest quality.
Thrive would like to thank its staff, managers, directors and community members who contributed to this accomplishment and are committed to continuing to provide exceptional services.
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 and continuous improvement services that center 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.
