Easterseals continues a 30+ year history of being accredited. This latest accreditation is the most recent consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has given to Easterseals of Greater Waterbury.
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 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.
For 60 years, Easterseals of Greater Waterbury has offered programs and services to over 30 cities and towns throughout Connecticut. Throughout the Greater Waterbury, Central and Northwest CT communities, we strive to provide a broad network of services including school readiness education, early intervention, rehabilitation services, behavioral therapy services, vocational services and audiology services. These services assist children, adults and their families to live, learn, work and play as integral members of the community.
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 and continuous improvement services that center 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.
