For Immediate Release

POSEY COUNTY REHABILITATION SERVICES AN AFFILIATE OF THE EASTER SEALS REHABILITATION CENTER AWARDED 3-YEAR CARF ACCREDITATION

In the spring of 2009, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities—CARF—announced that Posey County Rehabilitation Services, Inc. (PCRS) has been accredited for a period of three years for its Day Services. These services include Horizon Industries, a sheltered workshop for individuals with developmental disabilities, and New Frontiers Employment Services, which assists adults with and without disabilities in obtaining and maintaining employment in the Posey County area. PCRS is located at 5525 Industrial Rd in Mt. Vernon, IN, and is an affiliate of the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center.

The latest accreditation is the sixth consecutive three-year accreditation outcome that the international accrediting commission has awarded to PCRS. This represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded and shows substantial conformance to the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation outcome has successfully completed a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

The nonprofit Posey County Rehabilitation Services has been serving the Posey County area since 1984. It became an affiliate of the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center on January 1, 2005. PCRS provides prevocational, academic, and life enrichment activities through Horizon Industries and employment planning, preparation, job site training and job development through New Frontiers Employment Services.

CARF is an independent, not-for-profit 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, the accrediting body establishes client-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
