The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, CARF International, announced that Developing Potential, Inc. (DPI) has been accredited for a period of three years for its services. This latest milestone is the eighth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded to DPI. Developing Potential is very honored to receive this accreditation level and values CARF’s review of service delivery.

The three-year award is the highest level of accreditation that can be bestowed on an organization and shows the agency’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

Developing Potential, Inc. is a non-profit organization with program locations in Kansas City, Independence and Lee’s Summit. It has been providing day habilitation services and community employment for adults having developmental disabilities in the Greater Kansas City area since 1993.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
