MICHAEL W. TAYLOR
Mr. Taylor is the owner and Executive Director of Carmichael Enterprises
Residential Program, Ltd. He has more than 20 years of front-line experience
working with mentally ill and developmentally delayed clients. His commitment to the understanding and implementation of best practices in the field has led him to mentor a wide-range of agencies seeking accreditation, and improved programming and management. He is passionate about creating quality programs for the mentally ill and developmentally delayed, and the organizational culture that will support long-term, positive development. Mr. Taylor is presently a CARF surveyor in Behavioral Health, and specializes in policy development and program design.
Carmichael Enterprises Ltd. is a CARF-Accredited agency, and one of the first agencies in the province of British Columbia to earn accreditation. The organization started in 1998, and is now widely recognized for its innovative programs, and the ability to create success with clients. Carmichael has received several exemplary designations in the field, and long been a leader in improving the lives of youths with disabilities who have been dismissed or rejected by other organizations.
