Jewish Family & Children’s Service has received a national accreditation from the Council on Accreditation, which is an international nonprofit organization that accredits human and social service providers in best practices for child welfare, behavioral health and community-based human and social service providers.

The COA accreditation indicates the programs at JFCS are designed and delivered in a way that provides the highest level of quality care and excellence, according to a press release.

“We strive to incorporate the COA standards into the fabric of what we do every day,” said JFCS Vice President of Compliance and Quality Management Megan Lipman, in a prepared statement. “Our continuous review and application of the standards keep us focused on quality care to clients, creating a supportive environment for staff and maintaining efficient operations.”

The process for accreditation includes an in-depth review of the organization, comparing the organization and its programs against industry-wide standards of best practice, as well as an on-site visit to verify proper implementation of said standards.

JFCS is among 1,600 organizations throughout the United States and Canada who have received the accreditation since the COA’s founding in 1977.
