One Vision is CQL Certified from The Council on Quality and Leadership. This independent, worldwide, nonprofit accreditation organization surveys our agency every three years. This framework for quality monitoring strengthens our services through person-centered, internationally recognized approaches.

CQL accreditation places a heavy focus on Personal Outcome Measures, a powerful tool to ensure supports and services we offer to individuals are truly centered on individual goals and interests. 

"I liked my CQL POM interview. I show my goals to staff and my guardian. I'm planning my own life." --Laurie

Laurie is advocating for her personal goals as a result of her Personal Measures Outcome interview. She is making plans to further her educational goals and looks forward to more travels.
