Children’s Guild Receives Three-year Reaccreditation
Treatment foster care, therapeutic group homes and mental health services reaccredited
BALTIMORE—The Children’s Guild received full three-year reaccreditation from the Commission for Accrediting Rehabilitation Facilities. The reaccreditation applies to The Children’s Guild’s treatment foster care program, therapeutic group homes, outpatient behavioral health and school-based counseling services.
The Commission for Accrediting Rehabilitation Facilities is a national and international accrediting body of health and behavioral health care services. The accreditation designates quality behavioral health services and positions The Children’s Guild to access health care funding in the future.
The Children’s Guild’s therapeutic group homes and treatment foster care program have high success rates in returning children to lower levels of care. In addition, both programs have low turnover rates for staff, including direct-care and clinical professionals as well as foster parents, which help ensure consistent, quality care to children and their families.
“We help children and adolescents grow beyond the need for higher levels of care and prepare them for promising futures. We’re proud of their tremendous progress every day,” said Andrew L. Ross, president and CEO of The Children’s Guild. “Their success is our success as illustrated by this rigorous reaccreditation, which positions us to help even more youth in need.”
In addition to the therapeutic group homes and treatment foster care program, The Children’s Guild’s outpatient behavioral health services help children with mental health issues, and its school-based counseling services offer behavioral health counseling to more than 1,500 students in 70 public schools throughout Maryland each year.
