VSI Awarded Three-Year CARF Accreditation

CARF International recently announced that Vocational Services, Inc. has been accredited for a period of three years. The award follows an intense survey in May by a team of CARF surveyors who examined programs at VSI’s three locations in North Kansas City and Liberty, as well as VSI’s community employment program.

This accreditation represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows VSI’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. 

VSI has been providing employment and other services for Northlanders with developmental disabilities since 1966. Business services such as packaging and assembly along with original products such as first aid for pets fund the majority of VSI’s programs.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
