Manna Fund/Manna Treatment programs receive accreditation!
In December 2017, Manna Scholarship Fund, Inc was accredited THE HIGHEST accreditation level, a three-year program, for the IOP and PHP eating disorders program for both adults and youth. This was a long-awaited award!
But WAIT! Manna continues to strive towards maintaining this award and will again go through a follow-up evaluation in 2020. We continuously plan for this and aim to provide excellent care and an excellent work environment to help everyone touched by Manna to “move from Surviving to Thriving to Leading”. Our innovative approach to treating the individual and the family will keep us moving forward while maintaining the best of our heritage. Elements of our CARF accreditation to understand:
