Our 5th (!) CARF Survey…!

Hey Everyone:

Our intrepid reporter, Amit Ghosh, got a chance to sit down with Linda Siino from CARF to talk about accreditation, CARF and how it impacts Community Connections Support Services. Linda, Colleen and Paul (in the West Kootenays) were here the week before last surveying the organization.

More info about CARF is here. Check out the video below and hit us up with any other questions you may have. Thanks to Amit, Linda and Kathy for making this happen.
