NORWALK, Conn. -- CARF International has announced that Keystone House of Norwalk has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation.
This latest accreditation is the fifth consecutive CARF accreditation that Keystone House has received. Keystone House has voluntarily put itself through a peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during the three-day on-site survey that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable and accountable.
“The organization has a well-defined set of values, including compassion, service excellence, integrity, optimal care and creativity, and a positive workplace that is evidenced throughout its programs,” the CARF survey summary states.
Keystone House is a not-for-profit Norwalk organization that provides residential support, case management and social support services for adults over the age of 18 facing the challenges of a mental illness.
“We have been active and involved in the greater Norwalk community since 1972," said Valerie Williams, Keystone’s executive director. "I am so proud of the staff, clients and board members who work hard every day ensuring that Keystone is here to provide these needed and necessary services.”
