Today, White’s Residential & Family Services – one of Indiana’s largest and oldest nonprofit social services agencies and the parent organization of Compass Rose Academy – announced that it has been reaccredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA).   The social services agency, whose services are used across all of Indiana and now the country, achieved accreditation status by the COA in June 2009, demonstrating the implementation of best practice standards in the field of human services across all aspects of the agency’s programs, services, management and administration.

“Reaccreditation is a tremendous achievement that demonstrates that your organization is recognized as a provider that continues to successfully implement high performance standards and, as such, is delivering the highest quality services to all of its stakeholders,” said Richard Klarberg, president and CEO of the COA.

“Achieving reaccreditation also validates that White’s truly lives out another critical piece of our mission, which is to ensure that all individuals are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve,” said Dee Gibson, CEO of White’s and Compass Rose Academy.

White’s Residential & Family Services is Indiana’s largest social services agency. Located in Wabash, it has been serving the needs of families and children in crisis, from infants to youths of 21 years, irrespective of race or religious background, since 1850.
