Children’s Home Society of Washington takes great pride in offering high-quality programming for children and their families at all of our 20 locations throughout Washington state.

We recently received accreditation for three years by CARF International for our Child & Family Counseling programs at nine sites in Spokane, Vancouver and Wenatchee as well as our organization’s leadership and governance.

This is the first accreditation that CARF, the international accrediting body, has awarded to Children’s Home Society of Washington.

Our accreditation represents the highest level that can be awarded to an organization and shows our substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation like Children’s Home Society of Washington has been through a rigorous peer review process. We demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit our commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.

We are deeply honored to receive a three-year accreditation from CARF for our Child & Family Counseling programs and we believe this accreditation truly reflects the type of quality everyone receives when they participate in our programs.

Libby Hein is the chief program officer for Children’s Home Society of Washington.
