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.
