ALGOMA FAMILY SERVICES
 
*************************
Algoma Family Services scores 97percent - demonstrating continuous quality improvement
 
SAULT STE. MARIE - On December 19, the Board of Directors and staff of Algoma Family Services (AFS) will celebrate an agency milestone.
 
Maintaining the highest standards of quality in the delivery of children’s mental health services and administrative governance has earned AFS accreditation through Children’s Mental Health Ontario (CMHO) for an additional four years.
 
First accredited in 2004, AFS is committed to continuous quality improvement through evidence-informed practices that reflect the most up to date clinical interventions available for families in Algoma. 
 
“Once again, Children’s Mental Health Ontario has recognized through the accreditation process that AFS maintains a high standard of excellence in the programs and services that we provide,” states Pierrette Brown, Executive Director of Algoma Family Services.  “The dedication and hard work of our staff and Board of Directors is evidence of their commitment to providing quality mental health services for children, youth and families in Sault Ste. Marie and the Algoma District.”
 
The CMHO accreditation process addressed the four major areas of AFS’ operations: programming, staffing, managing and governing. 
 
For Algoma Family Services, accreditation has helped to build an ethic of continuous improvement into the organization and has strengthened the identity of the agency. 
 
This certification not only benefits AFS but the community as well by facilitating, developing and delivering high quality and responsive mental health services for children and families in Algoma.
 
AFS is one of 85 accredited Children’s Mental Health Centres in Ontario.
