LifeStream Services, the Aging and Disability Resource Center for East Central Indiana, has received another five-year national accreditation from the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS). AIRS is a professional association of more than 5,000 individuals and organizations that strives to build a high-quality community information and referral system (I&R). The association develops clear and consistent standards and acts as a seal of approval for organizations providing I&R services.
Accreditation is a multi-phase process that assesses more than 200 distinct operational components and culminates in a detailed onsite review. It includes a comprehensive review of the agency’s resource database and monitoring of the agency’s I&R service delivery. The importance of AIRS Accreditation is endorsed by both national and state entities as a benchmark for all I&R providers
“We are excited to be accredited through AIRS for our third time. It allows us to show our renewed commitment to providing quality information and assistance services to our community.” said Megan Velasquez, Director of Client Services. “Our information and assistance team works hard to make sure callers are able to access the resources needed to meet basic needs and begin the process for receiving home and community based services.” she added.
