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.”

 FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2012, file photo, women walk by a statue of Joseph and Emma Smith outside the church office building during the 182nd Semiannual General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City. Mormon church founder Joseph Smith had an underage bride and was married to other men’s wives during the early days of the faith when polygamy was practiced, a new church essay reveals. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says most of Smith’s wives were between 20 and 40 years old but that one was just 14. While part of the church's early days, polygamy has been banned in the faith since 1890.  (AP Photo/The Salt Lake Tribune, Scott Sommerdorf, File)
