CARF ACCREDITATION

Zepf Center is accredited through 2017 by Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International.  CARF International is an international, independent, nonprofit accreditor of human service providers.

Founded in 1966, CARF is a private, not-for-profit organization that promotes quality rehabilitation services.  It does this by establishing standards of quality for organizations to use as guidelines in developing and offering their programs or services to consumers. CARF uses the standards to determine how well an organization is serving its consumers and how it can improve.  

A provider may earn accreditation for its programs or services after demonstrating it substantially conforms to CARF standards.  To determine this conformance, a team of professional CARF surveyors personally visits the provider, generally for two to three days, to interview people, review documents, and observe services. 

The surveyors also provide consultation to enhance the provider's standards conformance.
CARF-accredited programs and services have demonstrated that they substantially meet internationally recognized standards.  CARF accreditation means that you can be confident that an organization has made a commitment to continually enhance the quality of its services and programs and that its focus is on consumer satisfaction.
