BFP Receives National Accreditation
Brevard Family Partnership recently received accreditation from the Council on Accreditation (COA), identifying Brevard County’s lead child welfare agency as an organization that has set high performance standards for itself and has made a commitment to their constituents to deliver the highest quality services.
COA accreditation is an objective and reliable verification that provides confidence and support to an organization’s service recipients, board members, staff and community partners. The accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of both an organization’s administrative operations and its service delivery practices. All are “measured” against national standards of best practice.
The accreditation process took nearly two years of strategic effort and commitment and included BFP self-assessing and reporting on its operations, programs and services, and policies and procedures and involved a detailed review and analysis of both the organization’s administrative operations and its service delivery practices.
Jim Carlson, chief operations officer at Brevard Family Partnership has been honored with the Jim Strayer Award for Leadership from the Florida Coalition for Children. The award was presented at the organization’s annual conference, held recently in Orlando.
The award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated the commitment to excellence, vision, gentle leadership style, and the love and compassion for children that so characterizes Jim Strayer, recognized as the architect of programs and services provided by the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranches and who continues to be an impassioned advocate for children throughout the state.Carlson wins leadership award from Florida Coalition for Children.
