On February 13, 2018, CARF International advised the staff that SCCSS was successful in meeting the organizational, client-level and program standards as assessed by three CARF surveyors as part of an on-site review from January 8-10, 2018.

The mission of CARF is to promote the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of persons served.

This accreditation outcome, which represents the highest level of accreditation, is awarded to organizations that show substantial fulfillment of the standards established by CARF.

SCCSS has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated that it values the input of their clients and is accountable to the community they serve, as well as to their funders, through meeting organizational and program standards.

Accreditation also demonstrates a provider's commitment to enhance its performance, manage its risk, and distinguish its service delivery.

SCCSS has been accredited with CARF since 2005 for its MCFD funded programs, including Family Support & Family Preservation, Youth in Transition, Aboriginal Families Pulling Together, Special Services to Children, Children’s Counselling, Parent-Tot Drop-In, Child Care Resource & Referral, Infant Development, Supported Child Development, Special Services Home Share and Occupational & Physiotherapy for children with a developmental delay or diagnosed disability.
