Hope Haven has been accredited by CARF for the following services: Community Access, Community Living Supports, Community Residential Alternative, and Supported Employment. We completed our most recent survey in 2020.
This three-year accreditation outcome, which represents the highest level of accreditation, is awarded to organizations that show substantial fulfillment of the standards established by CARF and clearly indicate that present conditions represent an established pattern of total operations that is likely to be maintained and/or improved in the foreseeable future. We have continued to receive this three-year accreditation since 1999.
CARF, a private, not-for-profit, Tucson-based accreditation body established in 1966, is committed to promoting the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of service through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.
CARF establishes standards of quality and conducts periodic on-site surveys to ensure that Hope Haven is meeting those standards. We are happy to provide anyone with further information about our accredited services and the performance of those services upon request.
Current funding is provided through a contract with The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) Regional Office. Significant funds are also received from the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH). Our contract with DBHDD currently requires us to provide services for day services and employment services. Funding provided by the DCH primarily supports Community Access, Community Living Support, Community Residential Alternative, and Supported Employment. Fundraising efforts and grants help to cover required costs that are not funded by other sources.
