Sponsoring, Supporting and Partner Organizations

COA’s standards and process remain relevant because of our strong connections within the field of social service delivery.  COA relies on these important relationships to stay informed about trends in the field, innovative practices, as well as to help advance COA’s mission by promoting best practices and to assist in increasing the value of accreditation.  Following are specific ways COA categorizes its relationships within the field.

If your organization is interested in collaborating on new initiatives and partnerships that support COA’s mission, please contact Zoë Hutchinson, Director of Business Development, by email or by phone at (866) 262-8088.

Sponsoring Organizations

COA Sponsoring Organizations are separately incorporated, not-for-profit national membership bodies comprised of organizations that provide services that are accredited by COA. Each Sponsoring Organization is represented on COA’s Sponsor Advisory Council (SAC). The SAC meets with COA staff to provide feedback regarding COA’s standards and process and is represented by five seats on COA’s Board of Trustees.  Members of Sponsoring Organizations receive a 25% discount on the accreditation fee for COA’s Private and Public Accreditation process.  Click here for a list of Sponsoring Organizations.
