Child Saving Institute Earns COA Reaccreditation
October 15, 2020
Child Saving Institute (CSI) has achieved national accreditation through the New York-based Council on Accreditation (COA). Accreditation demonstrates the implementation of best practice standards in the field of human services. COA evaluated all aspects of CSI’s programs, services, management and administration.
CSI provides fourteen services including: early childhood education, foster care, outpatient mental health therapy, family support, an emergency shelter, and more.
COA accreditation is an objective, independent and reliable validation of an agency’s performance. The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organization’s administration, management and service delivery functions against international standards of best practice. The standards driving accreditation ensure that services are well-coordinated, culturally competent, evidence-based, outcomes-oriented and provided by a skilled and supported workforce.
COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in the management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongoing quality improvement.
CSI has been accredited by COA since 1996.
