CARF International announced that Life Bridges has been accredited for a period of three years for its programs and serving intellectually challenged citizens of Bradley County. The latest accreditation is the sixth consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to Life Bridges.

The current accreditation recognizes 18 consecutive years of excellence for Life Bridges.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization consistently conforms to CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has been subjected to a rigorous peer review process. Life Bridges has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.

Life Bridges is a nonprofit organization with offices at 764 Old Chattanooga Pike. It has been providing community, employment, residential, and medical services in the Bradley County area since 1973.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services. Life Bridges is consistently awarded because of its continuous improvement of services that enhances the lives of the people it serves.

Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
