Massachusetts MENTOR, a partner of The MENTOR Network, has received a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for its services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
CARF is an international, independent accreditor of health and human services. Accreditation demonstrates that a provider is committed to providing high quality supports and services to the individuals it serves. The three-year accreditation, the longest awarded by CARF, certifies that the program “is designed and operated to benefit the persons served” and “demonstrates quality improvement from any previous periods of CARF accreditation.”
“The MENTOR Network and Massachusetts MENTOR are dedicated to supporting individuals with disabilities in reaching their full potential. We are pleased that CARF has recognized the quality of our programs and their value in helping individuals develop the independence to live rich, full lives,” said Jon Fisher, President of The Network’s Community Support Services Operating Group.
Massachusetts MENTOR’s programs for adults with intellectual and disabilities include Shared Living, also known as Host Homes, and Adult Foster Care programs, in which individuals live in private family homes with their caregivers, called Mentors.
