CARF International announced that McCrossan Boys Ranch has been accredited for a period of three years for its programs. This is the first accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has given to McCrossan Boys Ranch. It proves that the Ranch is committed to delivering high quality services to our boys in residence. We are equally committed to maintaining a high level of quality standards for business practice.
We’re proud to announce that McCrossan Boys Ranch has been put to the test and has met and mastered over 1000 rigorous standards earning CARF’s highest level of accreditation. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It 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.
McCrossan Boys Ranch has been serving youth for 63 years this year. The Ranch serves at-risk youth ages 9-20 and helps approximately 200 boys each year.
Our accreditation is a public commitment that we strive to:
- Involve persons served and their families in their service planning.
- Respect individual cultural preferences.
- Be accountable to our funding sources, referral agencies, and the community at large.
- Address health and safety concerns, such as building safety and emergency preparedness.
- Maintain management practices that are efficient, cost-effective, and based on outcomes and consumer satisfaction.
