About Us

Our History

Throughout our 50 years of service, CRF has been providing specialized occupational programs that require various support levels. From those with Moderate to Basic level functioning, we are able to aid in the development of skills and caring of needs across the board. We pride ourselves in having a dedicated staff eager to care for our clients and help them to better themselves each day. From our little agency to the prosperous company we have become, we at CRF have maintained our focus on family-oriented care and continue to provide our individualized services over the years.

Our Philosophy

CRF-First Choice is a family owned and operated corporation that values the importance of home and family. Therefore, the individuals we care for are encouraged to maintain relationships, develop a network of friends, and prevent themselves from becoming separate entities from their family and community. The extent to which a person becomes a member of their community is a matter of personal preference. As a minimum, community membership means that the individual will help make major as well as day to day decisions affecting their life. Family, home, friends and community inclusion are essential for each individual to reach their development, and realization of their potential is an integral part of each resident’s life regardless of their disability. 


Our Mission

Our mission is to assure that each individual can experience all of the rights granted to them as a citizen. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience and participate in a community life, and we wish to provide such a life for those in our care. Our goal is to assure that each individual is able to experience the highest possible quality of life under our care. Allowing individuals to be nurtured in a loving and supportive environment while giving them the freedom to hold their own system of values helps us to prevent the deprivation of any of our clients’ privacy, dignity, privileges, or rights.

The answer is CARF International. CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services providers in the areas of Aging Services, Behavioral Health, Child and Youth Services, Durable Medical Equipment, Employment and Community Services, Medical Rehabilitation, Opioid Treatment Programs, and Vision Rehabilitation Services. Programs and services that are CARF accredited have demonstrated their conformance to internationally recognized standards for service delivery. They have demonstrated their commitment to continuous quality improvement and a consumer-driven focus.

Person-centered Services

Persons served play an active and vital role in the CARF accreditation process, from helping to develop the international performance standards to giving input on the quality of services they receive.

 achieve optimum outcomes, and are empowered to exercise informed choice. is pleased to join CARF in this mission.
