Koinonia Enterprises earns 3 year CARF Accreditation


Koinonia Homes, Inc. has been accredited for a period of three years for its Community Employment Services: Employment Supports, Job Development; Community Integration and Organizational Employment Services programs. This is the first accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to Koinonia.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’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.

Koinonia is a nonprofit organization with offices at 6161 Oak Tree Blvd, Independence, OH. It has been providing services for intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in the Cleveland area since 1974.

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, and 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. For more information about the accreditation process, please visit the CARF website at
