COUNCIL ON ACCREDITATION
Your gift of cash helps the children of Boys Ranch and may provide you with a tax deduction.
We partnered with the Council on Accreditation more than 20 years ago. COA is an international, independent, nonprofit human service accrediting organization. Their mission is to partner with organizations like Boys Ranch to ensure children and families always receive the highest quality of care possible.
Adherence to COA standards is self-imposed. Unlike licensing standards, which are mandated by law, we follow COA standards because our leadership and board of directors believe independent evaluation is healthy for our organization and beneficial to our clients.
