Accreditation | Clear Lake, Iowa | One Vision

Starting in December 1984, One Vision has received accreditation for various services from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facitilies, better known as CARF. 

This independent, worldwide, nonprofit accreditation agency surveys our agency every three years. Accreditation assists service providers to improve the quality of their services and meet internationally recognized standards.  

CARF accreditation assures you that One Vision offers the highest quality of supports and services. OV currently holds the maximum three-year accreditation available on the following services: Supported Living, Community Housing, Respite Services, Community Employment Services (Job Development and Employment Supports), Community Integration, and Organizational Employment Services. We are currently accredited through October 2021.

Recently, our organization began the process to seek additional accreditation through The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL). While CARF primarily focuses on policies and procedures, 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.
