Advocacy Links received another 3 year CARF accreditation for Service Coordination, along with additional certification in the specialized areas of Children & Adolescents; Medically Fragile; Older Adults/Dementia Care. While accreditation is required for agencies providing most services for the Family Support and Community Integration and Habilitation Waivers, Advocacy Links sought and obtained the additional certifications to highlight the additional expertise provided by their staff.
Managing Member, Joy Greeney noted “We are very honored to have obtained these certifications. Our staff have worked very hard to live out our mission statement. It’s so encouraging to hear staff comment about how truly happy they are to be doing their jobs. Encountering people in the community who know who we are and what we do because of our active presence and great reputation is also a very humbling yet rewarding experience.”
Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) is an independent, nonprofit organization focused on advancing the quality of services to meet needs for the best possible outcomes. CARF provides accreditation services worldwide at the request of health and human service providers. Providers that meet CARF standards have demonstrated their commitment to being among the best available. CARF accreditation signals a service provider's commitment to continually improving services, encouraging feedback, and serving the community.
Following is a quote from an agency representative that we collaborate with routinely: “I am completely satisfied with the responsiveness of Advocacy Links Case Managers. Communication is timely. Their expectations are appropriate, and they are flexible where they can be. Leadership in meetings is helpful but not overbearing. Advocacy Links is one of the best case management agencies to work with in my experience.”
Advocacy Links provides Case Management services in northern Indiana to people receiving Medicaid Waivers services. Our mission is to advocate for people who need help, connect people to fiscally responsible resources, and respect everyone in the process.
