Upcoming Events

In October, CODI will be participating in our triennial CARF Accreditation survey process. Please find more information on this valuable organizational and leadership resource below.

CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is an independent, nonprofit organization that provides accreditation services for a wide range of human service organizations.


Becoming CARF accredited brings numerous value and benefits, including:

  1. Quality Improvement: CARF accreditation involves a rigorous evaluation process focusing on assessing an organization's adherence to high-quality standards and best practices. This process can significantly improve service delivery, organizational processes, and overall quality of care.

  2. Enhanced Credibility: Achieving CARF accreditation demonstrates CODI’s commitment to meeting industry standards and providing quality services that surpass consumers, families, referral sources, and funders’ expectations.

  3. Staff Morale and Engagement: The accreditation process involves the participation of staff at all levels. We believe staff members feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when CODI achieves accreditation, which leads to enhanced morale and increased engagement. The commitment to continuous improvement also encourages a culture of learning and ongoing staff development.

  4. Regulatory Compliance: CARF-accredited agencies are more likely to stay updated on regulatory changes and best practices.

  5. Data-Driven Decision-Making: The accreditation process involves collecting and analyzing data to demonstrate CODI’s performance and outcomes. This data-driven approach assists CODI leadership in identifying areas for improvement, making informed decisions, and optimizing service delivery.

  6. Risk Management: By adhering to CARF standards, CODI minimizes risks, leading to decreased incidents, errors, and liability issues.

  7. Continuous Improvement: CARF accreditation is not a one-time achievement; it requires an ongoing commitment to maintaining and improving quality standards. This focus on continuous improvement helps CODI remain adaptive, responsive, and innovative in a constantly evolving human services delivery system.

Special thanks to Congressman Jeff Van Drew and staff for taking time from their hectic schedules to visit CODI. The group toured our facility and spent time listening to consumer and staff concerns regarding employment opportunities for differently abled individuals. The top concern discussed was proposed federal legislation to abolish 14(C) certificates and sub-minimum wages, which was introduced in the Transformation to Competitive Employment Act.   


Thanks to Jacob Caplan, Director of Advocacy and Government Affairs, from ACCSESNJ, for arranging this important meeting and discussion. We appreciate the opportunity to discuss the significance of our work and its impact on the lives of those we serve throughout our community.
