Community Living North Grenville Awarded Three-year CARF Accreditation

December 5, 2016 — Community Living North Grenville is pleased to announce that CARF International recently awarded CLNG with a 3-year accreditation for their programs and services including, Community Housing, Community Transition Services, Community Integration, Respite Services, and Supported Living programs and Governance Standards. This is the third three year accreditation that the international Accrediting body has awarded to Community Living North Grenville.

In their letter, CARF declares, “This achievement is an indication of your organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served. Services, personnel and documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of conformance to standards”.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded. 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.

Community Living North Grenville is a non-profit Association with offices at 2830 County Road 43, Kemptville, and 130 Wellington St., Merrickville Ontario. It has been providing Residential and Community Participation Supports, Supported Independent Living and Respite Services in the North Grenville area since 1967.

CARF is an independent, non-profit 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, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

Community Living North Grenville is very proud of its Board and Employees to have received this accomplishment. For further information, contact us at 613-258-7177.
