For more than 40 years, The Council of Quality and Leadership (CQL) has been a leader in raising the bar for human service organizations and systems to continuously define, measure and improve the quality of life of all people. Organizations that are awarded accreditation by CQL meet a stringent set of criteria and demonstrate an on-going commitment to Person-centered excellence.

 

When Heritage Centers partnered with CQL to pursue accreditation, we undertook a rigorous process to review and improve services and supports.  Heritage Centers’ efforts were focused on empowering the people who receive support from their organization to make choices in how they live their lives, where they work, where they live and how they create a community. 

 

Heritage Centers has been awarded CQL accreditation as a result of demonstrating proficiency in the following areas:

  • Basic Assurances®  (ensuring fundamental safeguards related to health, safety and human security)
  • Personal Outcome Measures® (supporting and empowering people to achieve their goals and dreams)
  • Person-centered Excellence (demonstrating organizational commitment to continued enhancement of systems directly related to person-centered services)
