In FY2017, we were honored to become the first NAMI affiliate to be accredited by the nationally recognized Council on Accreditation (COA), an independent, nonprofit, human service accrediting organization, committed to promoting rigorous and relevant standards of excellence for child welfare, behavioral health, and other community-based social service nonprofit organizations.

 It serves as a reliable external validation of our organization’s performance evaluated against both national and international standards of best practice, while providing a roadmap for continued improvement. Because the COA reviews and accredits the entire organization, our Board of Directors, staff, consumers, and all other stakeholders can have confidence in the credibility, integrity, and achievement of our organization.
