Key's Rhode Island Regional Programs is Undergoing Their Fourth, Three-Year CARF International Accreditation

 

January, 2018

We are pleased to announce that Key’s Rhode Island regional programs, the Bridge to Success (Semi-Independent Living Program), the Girls STARR Program, and the Enhanced Family Support Services (EFSS) program and the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) is currently undergoing their fourth, Three-Year CARF IText Box:  nternational Accreditation.  By pursuing and achieving this accreditation, these programs demonstrate that they meet international standards for quality and are committed to pursuing excellence.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote quality, value and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous quality improvement of services that center on enhancing the lives of 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.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an agency and shows Key’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An agency undergoing Accreditation puts itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has to demonstrate to a team of surveyors, during an on-site visit, its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.

The entire agency congratulates the Rhode Island Key Program staff team for preparing for the Accreditation process.  Receiving CARF accreditation underscores their dedication to the important work we do every day and it demonstrates our staff’s commitment to Key’s mission – To assist troubled youth and their families with developing positive life skills and life experiences so that they may pursue productive and rewarding lives.
