Partnership to help soccer fans understand CARF's role in the health and human services industry
Tucson, Arizona (Wednesday, February 6, 2013) -- FC Tucson
announced today a partnership with CARF International. As part of this
partnership, FC Tucson will help soccer fans learn about CARF International's
role in health and human services.
"Every day soccer fans around the world come into
contact with services accredited by CARF International and they don't even know
it," said FC Tucson Chief Business Officer Chris Keeney. "We want our
fans and all soccer fans to know their story and understand why CARF's role in
the health and human services industry matters."
International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human
services. CARF-accredited service providers have applied CARF's comprehensive
set of internationally recognized standards for quality to their business and
Accreditation is something people often look for when
evaluating service providers for themselves or their loved ones. Accreditation
demonstrates a provider's commitment to continuously improve its service
quality and to focus on the satisfaction of the persons who are receiving
services. Accreditation matters when people want to be confident in their
choice of providers.
"This partnership will allow CARF to share the
soccer tournament experience with local not-for-profit organizations that serve
persons with disabilities, children, and families by providing complimentary
tickets to the games," Brian J. Boon, Ph.D., president/CEO of CARF, said. "Providing
this opportunity to local organizations is a way to build bridges of goodwill
and support for our community. It also publicly recognizes the therapeutic
value of sports and recreation and the inclusion of all persons with varying
abilities to participate in sports."
CARF is proud to partner with FC
Tucson and the Desert Diamond Cup as a tribute to team building, overcoming
obstacles, and personal achievement.
