Every three years, RAMS and its Hire-Ability Employment Services program must be evaluated by the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which assesses and accredits over 60,000 behavioral health, employment, and other community services across the globe. CARF assesses programs for roughly 20 factors including cultural competence, financial management, program management, health and safety, and others.
We are proud to announce that, last week, CARF awarded us a perfect score! RAMS is among the top 1-2% of CARF-accredited programs to achieve this in the world. Not only is achieving a perfect score on this prestigious assessment unheard of, this is actually the second time that we have achieved this during the last five CARF reviews!
Through numerous interviews with employees, community partners, and program participants, CARF reported that:
- Community partners said that the RAMS team is “supportive, empowering, impactful, diverse, [compassionate], responsive, flexible.”
- “The organization is truly participant driven.”
- Clients reported that “their dreams desires, and rights are respected by staff” and “RAMS Hire-Ability has the most caring staff that any organization can have”
We are incredibly proud of our team for how they imbue their work with dedication and compassion.
