Goodwill Earns Accreditation

    GRAND RAPIDS — Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids recently earned accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for a three-year period.

    The designation covers Goodwill’s community- and facility-based programs, including employment skill training, community-based employment services and overall agency best practices.

    “Goodwill is a leader because of its people and the passion with which each of them does their job,” said Phillip Weaver, president and CEO of Goodwill. “I am very lucky to be a part of such a great organization.”

    This accreditation represents the highest level of award, and is given to organizations that show substantial fulfillment of the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation outcome has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated that its programs and services are of the highest quality based on standards set by the industry and its stakeholders, according to Weaver.

    Goodwill has been accredited by CARF since. 1973.
