Goodwill Industries of Akron recently earned its 11th consecutive accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. It was granted a three-year accreditation, the highest level awarded, according to a recent news release from Goodwill Industries of Akron.
Goodwill Industries of Akron serves Summit, Portage, Medina, Ashland and Richland counties.
The accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization's conformance to the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities standards. An organization receiving a three-year Accreditation has put itself through a 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 high quality.
"We take pride in our commitment to help individuals prepare for, find and retain employment throughout the five-county area we serve," said Greg Morton, vice president of mission services and public relations for Goodwill Industries of Akron. "We continually strive to improve the services Goodwill offers and the recent CARF accreditation is a result of those efforts."
