The Board of Directors of India Rainbow is proud to announce that India Rainbow Community Services of Peel has earned the CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) Accreditation for a period of three years from June 2013 to June 2016.

After a long two year journey leading up to the final accreditation survey in June of this year, the award is an indication of the organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of persons served. We were surveyed in the following areas:

• Adult Day Services

• Governance Standards Applied

The final accreditation report applauds the organization’s exemplary conformance, while comparing the

organization’s standards to that of other organizations in a number of areas, based on CARF’s vast survey archives. Gurpreet Malhotra, Executive Director, stated “Our services, personnel and documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of meeting and exceeding CARF’s highest standards”. A special mention in the final report about the areas of our strength commends us on our cultural competency plan, effective staff education, the strategic plan which demonstrates positive results of including all stakeholders, and staff involvement in the planning process. The person centered approach by staff and creative program planning were but a few highlights mentioned. Our volunteer program is fully integrated in the organization’s mission and values and brings a vibrant addition to the programs. Organizational risk management includes many safeguards, while performance improvement and measurement system are woven throughout the organization.

India Rainbow achieved 100% conformance in the following areas of benchmarking:

Leadership, Strategic Planning, Input from Stakeholders, Legal Requirements, Financial Planning and Management, Risk Management, Human Resources, Technology, Rights of Persons Served, Accessibility, Performance Measurement and Management and Performance Improvement.

Our heartfelt thanks to all those who steadfastly supported us during this journey – clients, caregivers, volunteers, funders, networking partners, members of the Board, and above all – our staff who have shown an extraordinary commitment to their work. We could not have done this without any one of you.

Following this achievement, the Board and staff look forward to working closely with our sister organizations in the community to forge new partnerships and set new standards for service delivery while meeting the needs of the growing communities in Peel. We would welcome an opportunity to discuss any upcoming projects that aligns with our vision and mission.
