Accreditation Preparation

Becoming accredited gives organizations professional recognition for achieving the highest standards in superior service delivery and provides clients and other key stakeholders an appropriate instrument for evaluating service providers. Organizations that earn accreditation have reached beyond minimum licensing standards and made a long-term commitment to quality management, program consistency, outcome measurements, and continuous service improvement.
