Relations to other organizations
COA is an international, independent, not-for-profit, child- and family-service and behavioral healthcare accrediting organization. It was founded in 1977 by the Child Welfare League of America and Family Service America (now the Alliance for Children and Families).
In 2006 The Department of State designated the Council on Accreditation (COA) and the state of Colorado's Department of Human Services as the two entities that will accredit adoption agencies under The Hague requirements.
