Ranch Ehrlo Society continues to maintain the highest level of standards and continues to provide quality programs and services to the children, youth and families that we serve. Ranch Ehrlo has been reaccredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) following a year review of the agency which culminated with a site visit in Sept. 2019.
COA accreditation demonstrates that our organization meets the highest national standards of best practice and that it is delivering the best quality services, which aligns with our commitment to excellence in our continuum of service delivery.
During the “exit meeting” in the fall, the COA team provided very positive feedback. Common themes that emerged included the quality of our homes, the strength of our staff, the inclusiveness and community focus of our programs, and how mission and principle-driven we are. The peer reviewers collectively indicated that the Ranch was doing something special and the organization showed a lot of creativity and innovation in its programming.
“The reaccreditation has brought attention to our dedicated staff who continues to make the agency a success in fulfilling its mission and helping all individuals realize their full potential,” commented Andrea Brittin Ranch Ehrlo CEO. “We think we are a pretty darn good organization and it is very nice to hear it said experts in the field!”
The Ranch Ehrlo Society was first accredited in 1977 and has successfully maintained accreditation since that time. We are also the only residential treatment program in Saskatchewan that is accredited by COA.
