History

About CARF Accreditation

Casa Esperanza, Inc. is committed to delivering high quality services to our persons served. We are equally committed to maintaining a high level of quality standards for business practice.

We are proud to demonstrate this commitment by achieving a CARF Three-Year Accreditation for the following Program Services:

What does that mean for you

  • Persons served and their families look for organizations that are accredited as a sign of quality when looking for services.
  • Accreditation is evidence to persons served that an organization has demonstrated its commitment to encouraging feedback, continuously improving services, enhancing performance, and managing risk.
  • Persons served and their families can be confident that services will be focused on their unique needs.
Philosophy

What is CARF?

CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services providers in the areas of Aging Services, Behavioral Health, Child and Youth Services, Durable Medical Equipment, Employment and Community Services, Medical Rehabilitation, Opioid Treatment Programs, and Vision Rehabilitation Services. CARF assists service providers in improving the quality of their services by applying sets of quality standards during an on-site survey.

When a service or program is CARF accredited, it means it has undergone an in-depth review of its services and demonstrated substantial conformance to the CARF standards during the on-site survey. The service or program has demonstrated its commitment to delivering quality services that focus on your needs and preferences.

Person-centered services

Persons served play an active and vital role in the CARF accreditation process, from helping to develop the international performance standards to giving input on the quality of services they receive. Through accreditation, providers demonstrate their belief that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect, have access to needed services that achieve optimum outcomes, and are empowered to exercise informed choice.

Casa Esperanza is pleased to join CARF in this mission.
