YES holds a three-year Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accreditation for all of our programs serving runaway, homeless and foster care youth.

Representing the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization, this accreditation demonstrates our strict adherence to international standards for quality, unyielding pursuit of excellence and substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving the three-year accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable and accountable.

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 those served. The accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
