Arizona’s Children Association has been re-accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA)!
What is COA?
Accreditation from COA is the international standard for high quality care in the fields of child welfare, behavioral health and prevention services.
“Founded in 1977 by the Child Welfare League of America and Family Service America (now the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities), [their] mission is to partner with human service organizations worldwide to improve service delivery outcomes by developing, applying, and promoting accreditation standards.”
What does it mean to be Accredited?
Arizona’s Children Association is committed to the highest quality care for children and families. Being accredited means that our agency has gone through the formal evaluation and review and has met quality standards developed by human service experts. “Accreditation signifies that an organization or program is effectively managing its resources and providing the best possible services to all of its stakeholders.”
We have not only received Accreditation, but required no corrections/adjustments following our recent review!
According to COA, “COA’s program of quality improvement is designed to identify providers that have met high performance standards and have made a commitment to their stakeholders to deliver the very best quality services. COA is proud to recognize Arizona’s Children Association as one of these outstanding providers, and we wish you the very best in your continuing work with the individuals you serve.”
We are extremely honored to have received re-accreditation through COA! We also maintain a number of state licenses and organizational memberships that allow us to remain on the leading edge of child welfare and behavioral health issues.
