Arizonaâ€™s Children Association (AzCA) has been re-accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA). AzCA remained consistent and met the international standard for high-quality care in the fields of childcare, behavioral health, and prevention services.
â€œLet me say how significant this achievement is,â€ said Jody Levison-Johnson, president, and CEO of the Council on Accreditation. â€œIt represents the fulfillment of countless hours of hard work and the dedication of many peopleâ€“most notably the staff at AzCa and the members of the board and leadership.â€
AzCA is committed to the highest quality care for children and families. Being accredited means that the agency has gone through the formal evaluation and review and met quality standards developed by human service experts. Accreditation signifies that an organization or program is effectively managing its resources and providing the best possible services to all its stakeholders.
â€œAzCAâ€™s outstanding COA results demonstrates that our organization, including our staff, leadership, and board of directors, is committed to providing the highest quality care and service to the children and families we serve,â€ said Emily Bofetta, chief compliance & quality officer. â€œThe accreditation process gave us the opportunity to ensure our programs, processes, and operations remain in alignment with our mission, while also meeting the rigorous standards set forth the by Council on Accreditation. We are proud of the work our staff does each day for the people we serve and are delighted to be recognized as a leader by the Council on Accreditation.â€
