Detroit, Michigan (June 2011), CARF International announced that Mariners Inn has been accredited for a period of three years for its Community Housing and for its Residential Treatment Program.  The latest accreditation is the 4th consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body has awarded to Mariners Inn.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards.  An organization receiving a 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.

Mariners Inn is a nonprofit organization with offices at 445 Ledyard in Detroit.  It has been providing full service substance abuse treatment, shelter, and supportive services to Southeast Michigan’s homeless men since 1925.

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