Hopewell Industries, Inc. awarded Three-Year CARF Accreditation 

| March 2, 2015

COSHOCTON – CARF International announced that Hopewell Industries, Inc. has been accredited for a period of three years for its Community Employment Services, Community Integration and Organizational Employment. This is the first accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to Hopewell Industries, Inc.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous 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 the highest quality.

CARF surveyors made no recommendation, which signifies that they did not identify any areas of nonconformance to the standards. This is an extraordindinary accomplishment, as only three percent of CARF surveys result in no recommendations.

Hopewell Industries, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization with offices at 637 Chestnut Street, Coshocton. It has been providing employment services for Coshocton county citizens since 1965 and was incorporated in 1972.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services. For more information about the accreditation process, please visit the CARF website at www.carf.org.
