We were notified by Allamakee Clayton Electric that they will be shutting off the electricity at the TASC skill building center, 2213 Mt. Olivet Road NW, Waukon, Iowa all day on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 for maintenance/upkeep. We had requested that they do this on a Saturday; however, Allamakee Clayton has looked into all options and have no other alternatives available. As a result, the TASC skill building center will be closed on Tuesday, December 10. Daytime jobsites will run as scheduled for those living in town. For those living in town, please consider filling in for out-of-town workers if asked by a job coach. Thank you. Sheila Schulte, TASC, Inc.

TASC, Inc. recently received notification from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) that it has been awarded accreditation for a three year period for its Community Employment Services: Employment Supports, Community Employment Services: Job Development, Community Housing, Community Integration and Supported Living programs. TASC, Inc. is a nonprofit organization serving individuals with disabilities in Allamakee, Winneshiek, Howard, Fayette and Clayton Counties.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level that can be given to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. The organization welcomed three surveyors, all from different states. They reviewed programs, policies and procedures. They interviewed management, staff, consumers, guardians, talked with board members as well as agencies that purchase the services offered by TASC. These findings were then compiled by the survey team and presented to CARF’s Board of Trustees who made the final decision on accreditation status. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
