As an organization that has been around for 50 years with an exceptional reputation from clients and community leaders across the city, Alpha Home’s CARF International survey confirmed the organization's commitment to clients and the community. Last month, for three straight days, Alpha Home put itself through a meticulous peer review process as a team of CARF-International surveyors examined services and treatment programs. This accreditation proved Alpha Home is up to CARF's internationally recognized service standards and best practice. Alpha Home’s commitment and services are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
