Accreditation

A CARF Three-Year Accreditation was first awarded to Independent Living Housing Society in 2005 for the provision of programs and services in our homes.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation is a peer review process that helps the Independent Living Society of Greater Victoria improve the quality of services.  Accreditation demonstrates that our organization has opened its service delivery and business processes to outside scrutiny to improve the quality of our programs. Every three years surveyors visit our homes and offices to evaluate our compliance with the highest standards for residential operations and organizational management.

What is CARF?

CARF is a private, non-profit organization that grew out of a need to promote quality programs for people with disabilities. CARF has surveyors with extensive experience and training in the area in which they survey. The role of the surveyor is to help organizations achieve the goal of assisting individuals with disabilities in achieving their highest human potential.

Testimonials

I love my home! My favourite thing is the great food. I have lots of fun with my staff and we stay quite busy. We have parties, which are the best! I have my own phone line and I love staying in touch with my family and friends. I had a great time at Operation Trackshoes and my brother joined me in the games. I love baseball and we go to see the HarbourCats in the summer. My sports teams are the Blue Jays and Canucks. The best time of the year are my birthday when I have three parties and Christmas when I get to spend lots of time with family and friends.
