CARF International announced that Goodwill of Western New York has been accredited for a period of three years. The latest accreditation is the eighth consecutive three-year accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has given to Goodwill.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality. CARF’s employment and community services standards reflect leadership in the field internationally.
