Baptist Family is pleased to announce it has earned accreditation from the prestigious Council on Accreditation (COA).

COA is one of two national bodies that accredit programs doing intense work with kids in trouble. JACHO (The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) is the other, but it mainly accredits programs with large, centralized residential facilities. Baptist Family's CHOSEN program is founded on the principle that foster children are better served in smaller, individual homes with a strong family unit.

COA accreditation attests that an organization meets the highest national standards and is delivering the bet quality services to the community it serves. Baptist Family is proud to join COA's Community of Excellence that includes more than 1,000 private and public organizations that serve over 6,000,000 children, individuals, and families in the United States and Canada.

In their letter of accreditation, the president of COA, Richard Klarberg, wrote "Let me again say how significant this achievement is! It represents the fulfillment of countless hours of hard work and the dedication of many people--most notably your staff and the members of your board. Please extend my congratulations to them."
