Accreditations & Licensure  

The Charles River Center has been awarded the highest level of accreditation by CARF (The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) International for its Day Habilitation program for the past 10 years.

CARF accreditation is a public seal of trust and commitment to quality based on internationally accepted standards. Achieving this accreditation demonstrates the Charles River Center's commitment to exceptional, personalized care. An organization receiving the highest level of CARF accreditation has undergone a detailed peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors, during an on-site visit, its commitment to providing programs and services of the highest quality.

The Charles River Center’s services are also licensed and certified by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services.  Our Residential, Employment/Community-Based Day Programs have received The Department of Developmental Service’s highest award for many consecutive years.
