NSITE Receives CARF Accreditation

High level of accreditation recognizes organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of lives for those served

June 10, 2024

NSITE, the talent management enterprise launched by National Industries for the Blind in 2021, provides a continuum of employment services that connect employers with talented, dedicated people who are blind or visually impaired, including veterans. Recently NSITE received accreditation by CARF, an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services, enhancing the lives of persons served worldwide.

In its accreditation decision, CARF noted that NSITE demonstrated a number of strengths, including leadership from a collaborative team dedicated to providing increased employment opportunities for clients with low vision and blindness. And, even in the few short years since its inception, “NSITE has already forged partnerships with other private organizations dedicated to this population, state vocational rehabilitation funders, and employers across the country for the purpose of expanding educational and employment opportunities for the population served.”

The report continues, “NSITE links with technology companies, software developers, and job boards to offer its assistance in making the online experience more accessible to persons with low vision and blindness. The organization’s services are provided remotely, and its business systems are built and implemented with full accessibility as the priority. The initiatives the organization is working on with major technology providers are anticipated to ultimately impact NSITE’s services and all clients who access technology as part of their lives.”

“We are delighted to have earned this three-year accreditation and recognition from CARF,” said Jonathan Lucus, executive director of NSITE. “Through our services and our collaborations and partnerships, NSITE has been able to play a significant role in ensuring employment for many people who are blind or low vision, people who are talented, educated, and ready to work but need access to meaningful career opportunities.”

Since 1966, the CARF seal has been the hallmark of quality in human services. CARF’s reputation for advancing excellence in the industry is founded on its unique consultative peer-review survey model, conformance focus, and evolving field-driven standards. CARF-accredited programs and services are in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania.
