D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s Reaches Nationally Recognized Accreditation Standards in Human Services 

D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s, a leading provider of child welfare and human services in Michigan, is proud to announce that it has achieved re-accreditation with the Council on Accreditation (COA), a prestigious organization that accredits human service organizations around the world. 

DABSJ underwent a rigorous evaluation process to achieve re-accreditation. The organization met or exceeded over 90% of the standards set by COA, demonstrating its commitment to providing high-quality services and programs to children and families. 

“We are honored to receive re-accreditation from the Council on Accreditation,” said Mary Muliett, President & CEO of DABSJ. “This recognition reflects the dedication of our team to providing the best possible care to the children and families we serve. I’m inspired by their commitment to continually improving our programs and services to meet the needs of our community.” 

COA’s accreditation process involves an in-depth review of an organization’s governance, management, and service delivery practices. The process includes an on-site visit by a team of evaluators who assessed the organization’s compliance with over 900 standards. Accreditation is awarded to organizations that demonstrate their commitment to excellence in all areas of service provision. 

“Our team has pulled through some of the most difficult times ever seen in our sector, with a pandemic and a national workforce shortage,” said Mulliet. “To persist through those challenges while maintaining high-quality support for children and families is a tremendous accomplishment. I’m filled with gratitude and pride in the work they do each day.” 

DABSJ is inclusive and welcoming – from our team members, to the children we serve, to the families we license as foster parents. You could play a part in providing homes and hope for children who need a place to be themselves.
