People who live and work at Goodwin House can count on the organization’s stability and steadfastness, even during the economic climate that has been so unsettled in recent years. We are committed to operating in ways that meet or exceed best practices in every aspect of our operations, and to acting today in ways that ensure strength for decades to come.
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation and Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CARF/CCAC) has rigorous standards to maintain excellence. Goodwin House was one of the first communities in the country to earn this accreditation and we have been re-accredited every five years since 1992. Only 300 communities nationwide choose this rigorous voluntary accreditation, and Goodwin House communities are proud to be among them.
Prudent financial management and stewardship have enabled Goodwin House to meet and extend its mission.
