COA Standards for Public Agencies

Collaborating with COA has equipped me with enhanced knowledge, skills, and experience necessary for the career roles I have held within public welfare agencies. I remain very appreciative of the professional and personal benefits that I have realized from my role as a Peer Reviewer and Team Leader with COA. Through accreditation, we have maintained our level of practice and with our re-accreditation efforts over the years, we have continually improved in the efficiency and effectiveness of our functioning and practice. While the accreditation process provides us with an all-encompassing assessment of the organization, highlighting areas of improvement and opportunities for growth, it also affords us the opportunity to really showcase and demonstrate the good work that we do to an external, unbiased team of experienced human service professionals, in other words, it provides us a "Time to shine"! Kentucky is honored to be one of only four public state-administered child welfare public agencies currently accredited through COA in the nation.

Becoming familiar with and understanding the After School standards was a breeze because of the training webinars and the great customer service we received from all of the COA staff. Thank you for supporting our military families.
