Standards for Military Family Readiness (MFR) Programs

The Standards for Military Family Readiness (MFR) programs were developed in support of enhanced programmatic growth and stability, an unwavering commitment to the health, safety, and rights of clients, and producing high quality, measurable results. 

The Military Family Readiness Program Accreditation process involves the review and accreditation of the program’s administrative operations and its service delivery practices.

COA's Standards for Military Family Readiness programs are intended for military programs seeking accreditation for their military family readiness services.
