In November 2014, CARF International announced that Goodwill Industries of the Valleys received its CARF accreditation for a period of three years for its Community Employment Services, Employee Development Services, and Organizational Employment Services programs. The latest accreditation is the fifth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded Goodwill Industries of the Valleys.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded 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 to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

Goodwill once again hosted CARF Surveyors in October of 2017.  The outcome of the survey will be received later in the year.
