Paula B. Matthews, School Age Program Coordinator

Preparing for our after school accreditation was an awesome and very valuable learning experience for the Child and Youth Professionals at Charleston Air Force Base. 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.

    The network recruits or contracts with members and community partners based on anticipated and identified needs of the service population, including needs related to geographic location, and cultural and linguistic diversity.

  • NET 9.02

    The network demonstrates a commitment to providing clients with access to provider organizations that best meet their needs and preferences, including providers who are responsive to the diverse cultural needs of clients and are able to connect clients with natural supports.

    Interpretation: The network demonstrates this commitment by including providers who might not otherwise be able to participate in the network because of constraints of size, budgetary capacity, organizational development, or similar limitations, when such inclusion is necessary to allow clients access to providers that meet their needs and preferences.
