Preferred Residential Network (PRN-AFC) has achieved national accreditation through the New York-based Council on Accreditation (COA). Preferred Residential Network provides the following services, Adult Foster Care. It took Preferred Residential Network 12 months to achieve accreditation. Organizations pursue accreditation to demonstrate the best practice standards in the field of human services. COA evaluated all aspects of Preferred Residential Network’s programs, services, management, and administration.

COA accreditation is an objective, independent, and reliable validation of an agency’s performance. The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organization’s administration, management, and service delivery functions against international standards of best practice. The standards that drive accreditation to ensure that services are well-coordinated, culturally competent, evidence-based, outcomes-oriented and provided by a skilled and supported workforce. COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in the management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongoing quality improvement.
To achieve COA accreditation, Preferred Residential Network first provided written evidence of compliance with the COA standards. After that, a group of specially trained volunteer Peer Reviewers confirmed adherence to these standards during a series of on-site interviews with trustees, staff and clients.

Based on their findings, COA’s volunteer-based Accreditation Commission voted that Preferred Residential Network had successfully met the criteria for accreditation. An endorsement of COA and the value of its accreditation process is reflected in it being named by the US State Department as the sole national independent accrediting body under the Hague Convention on Inter-country Adoption to accredit inter-country adoption service providers. Also, COA is the only national accreditor designated by the U.S. Department of Defense to develop accreditation standards and processes for human service programs provided to military personnel and their families.To learn more about COA, please visit
