DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) has recently accredited the Charlotte White Center for a third consecutive three-year period for its residential brain injury services.

For over 38 years, Charlotte White Center’s mission has been to provide quality community health and social services for adults, children and families affected by cognitive or developmental disabilities, behavioral or mental health challenges, domestic violence or acquired brain injuries. 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. The reviewers noted a number of areas in which the Charlotte White Center excelled.

The Charlotte White Center was recognized for demonstrating a firm commitment to the provision of quality rehabilitation services and continued excellence in addressing the needs of people they serve with acquired brain injuries. CARF noted that Charlotte White Center facilities are well designed to promote the rehabilitation needs of the people they serve, and staff demonstrate competency in the skills required to meet the needs of these individuals.
