Accreditation Preparation

“AG became a key part of the accreditation team comprised of staff and Board members and was instrumental in helping us to achieve our goals. AG not only provided leadership and support throughout the process, but became a part of the CCCS-PR family.”
Eugenio AlonsoBoard Vice PresidentConsumer Credit Counseling Services of Puerto Rico
“AG provided very thorough feedback based on their considerable knowledge and understanding of COA standards. As a result, our study was enhanced and required no changes. We would highly recommend Accreditation Guru to any agency working towards reaccreditation or initial accreditation.”
Dennis Meehan, Regional DirectorOmni Visions, Inc.
“The guidance and expertise Bill Wilson Center received from Accreditation Guru was exceptional! I could call any time of the day (or night!) or send an email and their response was quick and informative.”
Lorraine FloresDivision Director of ComplianceBill Wilson Center
“I thought that I could handle the COA process without the help of an outside consultant, but I was so wrong! We engaged AG to review documents, make suggestions and recommendations and clarified many of accreditation-related issues.  We were able to save hours and hours of stress for the agency and the staff! AG is the best!”
Sharon HudsonExecutive DirectorFamily Counseling & Children's Services
“Among other things, AG organized the work, assisted staff as they completed narratives, trained staff, helped with Performance Quality and Improvement and organized documents for the site visit. Our self-study required no changes and our site visit went so well that our accreditation was expedited. I would highly recommend Accreditation Guru to any agency that is going through accreditation!”
