TCRC COMPLETES THREE-YEAR ACCREDITATION PROCESS

Tazewell County Resource Centers, Inc. completed its three-year accreditation process with CARF on December 15, 2010.  Of the 932 standards on which it was judged, TCRC received a compliance rating of 99.3% – placing it within the top one percentile of the national and international organizations that also care for the needs of persons with developmental disabilities. 

 Ron Hale, TCRC’s President and CEO, is very pleased with the outcome, “TCRC put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.”  He went on to say that, “our community can have every confidence in TCRC and its high quality programs and services.”

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, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

Tazewell County Resource Centers, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit social service agency serving children and adults with developmental disabilities and visual impairment in central Illinois.
