BRISTOL — For the seventh consecutive time, a nonprofit agency in Elkhart County that serves children, adults and families with disabilities has earned a three-year accreditation for three of its programs.

ADEC Inc. was reviewed in November by CARF, an international accrediting organization, for an extension of its accreditation for its employment services, community integration and supported living programs through January 2017.

CARF’s review praised ADEC for 27 strengths, including its use of technology to enhance services; innovative approaches to activities focusing on the arts in its day services programs; and strong, therapeutic relationships between staff and clients.

“I am very proud of the commitment to excellence, efficiency and quality care demonstrated at every level at ADEC, from board members to direct support professionals,” said Donna Belusar, president and CEO of ADEC. “Being commended by our peers at CARF validates our vision and our mission.”
