In 2014, ASI received national accreditation from the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL). This accreditation is awarded to human service organizations that support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, people with mental illness, and others. The main focus of CQL accreditation is to ensure organizations define and measure quality from the person’s perspective through the use of Personal Outcome Measures and Person-Centered Planning. As an accredited body, ASI integrates these standards throughout not only our programs, but also our policies, intake, and reporting materials. ASI is the first organization of its kind in the country to receive this national accreditation.
