We Are Boundless
Boundless is more than a company name. It’s a statement about who we are and what we believe. For nearly forty years, we have provided individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and behavioral health challenges the freedom and opportunity to live boundless lives. Founded in 1980 as Franklin County Residential Services, we have grown from a modest, centralized organization into a dynamic family of companies engaged with IDD and behavioral health communities across the state.
Proudly CQL and CARF Accredited
We were the first provider organization in Ohio to receive national accreditation from the Council On Quality and Leadership (CQL). This accreditation emphasizes definition, promotion, measurement, and improvement of personal and community quality of life for people with disabilities and/or mental illness. As part of our commitment to person-centered, self-directed services and planning, Boundless brings all of its partner organizations into CQL fold. We are likewise CARF accredited.
CARF accreditation recognizes service provider organizations that emphasize an integrated and personalized approach to services and outcomes, strive for continuous improvement, are responsive to the community, and practice efficient management techniques.
Our shared values of love, excellence, respect, empowerment, and well-being guide everything we do.
Building a world that realizes the boundless potential of all people.
We are a CQL- and CARF-accredited nonprofit with nearly forty years of experience.
