Children's Home receives accreditations

On the Move

The Florida United Methodist Children's Home recently received EAGLE accreditation as a premier faith-based organization, and it was awarded national accreditation through the New York based Council on Accreditation (COA).

EAGLE stands for Educational Assessment Guidelines Leading toward Excellence and is the only faith-based accrediting body in the world. The organization's primary goal is to recognize those that voluntarily go beyond the minimum requirements of licensure to improve processes and outcomes. The accreditation was awarded through the year 2020. "In the end, it all translates into better care for our children," said Kitwana McTyer, President and CEO of the Children's Home.

The Florida United Methodist Children's Home offers many services for both families and children. Included is a residential care program for school-aged children victimized by abuse, abandonment or neglect.

The national accreditation, that was also awarded, entailed a detailed review and analysis of the organization's administration, management and service delivery functions. For more information about this provider, please click here.
