COA Standards for Private Organizations

Being COA accredited is our way of assuring the public and our community partners that our organization provides the highest quality of care and services for the foster youth in our programs. The extensive external review process helps to ensure that our administrative and management teams are held to the highest standards and it pushes us to constantly explore innovative ways to improve our overall performance and service. While the accreditation process itself was a bit daunting at times, the COA staff was always available to answer our questions and to offer any guidance that we needed. In the end, it was all worth it, because when people see the COA logo on our flyers and website, they immediately know that the vetting process has been thoroughly completed for them and that our organization will settle for nothing less than providing program excellence.
