Above, the Community Opportunities crew gathers together. Clients and support staff went to a pumpkin patch.

Community Opportunities underwent their tenth CARF survey last year, conducted by a three-person survey-team. The review of over 1078 CARF standards were assessed during this survey. Now, Community Opportunities is proud to announce CARF International has awarded them a three-year accreditation. 

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. 

An organization receiving this level of accreditation has to put itself through a rigorous peer review process. 

It has to demonstrate to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality. 

An excerpt from the survey team’s report states, “Community Opportunities appears to be well respected in the community and has been recognized for various initiatives that have benefited clients. 

Examples include increasing employment and community engagement options for clients and enhancing transportation options.”

Community Opportunities offers a wide array of services and supports to individuals in Lincoln County with intellectual/developmental disabilities, including: Case Management; Residential Services; Community Services; Employment Services; Transition Services and Family Support.
