COA Standards for Private Organizations

Since Nuevo Amanecer Latino Children’s Services pursued its COA accreditation on October 14, 2004, this corporation has sustained a continuous quality improvement process by not looking whom to blame among the involved parties but improving what we have already done well… because good enough is not good enough. By the same token, our gratitude will never be enough to recognize and thank COA, to thank our “amigo” Richard, and to thank all and each of the members of COA staff. We have really enjoyed the fact that we are united by the power COA accreditation and by sharing our common mission by providing children and families, in a contextual and in a multicultural approach, with the best while performing with efficiency and efficacy with the best COA standards and best professional practices of excellence.   

-Jorge Alberto Acosta, Founder of Nuevo Amanecer Latino Children's Services
