Elmcrest receives CARF Accreditation


Elmcrest has received a three-year accreditation from the International Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). This is official recognition that Elmcrest is guided by internationally recognized service standards and best practices.

This achievement is the result of an 18-month in-depth on-site review that opened all Elmcrest’s services and business practices to outside scrutiny. Ultimately this ensured that Elmcrest achieves the highest quality of care for the children and families it serves.

CARF is an international non-profit accreditor of health and human services organizations. Its purpose is to advise such agencies on quality improvement and to verify that the agency respects the rights and individualism of its residents.

This CARF accreditation validates the success Elmcrest has with thousands of children each year in our Qualified Residential Treatment Program (QRTP). The accreditation signifies that Elmcrest is committed to the needs of its residents and makes them the center of all that it does. This accreditation is a public statement that verifies that Elmcrest’s services are of the highest possible quality.
