DNMM Receives Three-Year CARF Accreditation

CARF logoCARF Accredited The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) has just announced Disability Network of Mid-Michigan (DNMM) has received a three-year accreditation for the following programs:

  • Centers for Independent Living
  • Employee Development Services
  • Self-Directed Community Supports and Services: Flexible Supports Planning
  • Services Coordination
  • Supported Living
  • Transition Services

Andrea Sneller at expoCARF is an independent, non-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services. CARF establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services. Achieving accreditation requires a service provider to meet extensive standards of care, commit to quality improvement, and place its focus on the unique needs and results of services for each of the persons the provider serves. DNMM has been CARF accredited since 1998.

"This significant achievement is an indication of our organization's commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the consumers we support," said David Emmel, DNMM Executive Director. "This accreditation represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded, it shows our substantial conformance to CARF standards, and it is a credit to the teamwork and dedication of our staff."

Jerry Pritchett, President of DNMM's Board of Directors, said "the CARF accreditation precisely aligns with DNMM's mission of promoting and encouraging independence for all people with disabilities and its vision of being recognized as the disability experts in the community."
