The Council on Quality and Leadership Announces

the Two Year Accreditation of The Arc of Atlantic County.

 

Towson, MD - December 9, 2004 -   The Council on Quality and Leadership this week announced the two year accreditation of The Arc of Atlantic County, Inc., Somers Point, New Jersey.

 

The accreditation review of The Arc of Atlantic County, Inc., directed by Deborah Davies, CEO, was held October 4 - 8, 2004, according to Shawn Jeffers, chairman of the Council's Board of Directors.

 

The Council on Quality and Leadership is dedicated to providing world-wide leadership for greater accountability, responsiveness, and quality performance in human and social service organizations and systems.  

 

Since 1969, The Council on Quality and Leadership has been a leader in developing and measuring quality indicators and standards for services for people with disabilities, emphasizing values-based supports and services, individualized planning and personal outcomes.

 

The Council's Personal Outcomes Measures, the first valid and reliable measurement system designed to assess the quality from the consumer's point of view, formed the base of the accreditation review process for The Arc of Atlantic County, Inc.   This system for quality improvement and measurement is grounded in responsiveness to outcomes defined by each person, rather than compliance with organizational processes.   The system ensures The Arc of Atlantic County, Inc.'s accountability to service users and provides assurances to funders that valuable community resources are used efficiently and comprehensively.

 

The Council's term of accreditation is based on measures of Leadership, Systems, and Quality Management and Planning.

  The National accreditation review of The Arc of Atlantic County, Inc. demonstrates its pursuit of the highest standards of excellence.
