High Standards for program delivery are essential for strong client outcomes. This belief has resonated with Lethbridge Family Services for countless years and has been recently recognized. The New York-based Council on Accreditation of Services for Children and Families (COA) has bestowed the significant honor of accreditation onto LFS for another four years. COA is one of the most sought after accreditations that a human services organization can achieve and Lethbridge Family Services has been accredited through this body since the 1980s
“The process of being accredited through COA is rigorous, demanding, and ensures that all policies and processes of an organization have been reviewed and evaluated for the benefit of excellent program delivery and quality client care. Team COA, led by Dianne Kotkas and myself, worked hundreds of extra hours to prepare for this reaccreditation process and we are thrilled that we were granted this designation in the quickest re-accreditation decision turnaround that COA has ever delivered”-says Sandra Mintz, Chief Executive Officer, Lethbridge Family Services.
