Devereux CBC receives national accreditation!

Port Saint Lucie – Devereux Community Based Care is now among the accredited elite social service organizations on the Treasure Coast and throughout the nation.

The international Council on Accreditation announced in December its decision to award expedited accreditation to Devereux CBC, bringing to close an 18-month process of self study and outside evaluation.

The accreditation is a testament to Devereux CBC's commitment to maintaining the highest level of standards and quality improvements, Chief Executive Officer Carol Deloach said.

"That is especially important for an organization like Devereux CBC, because of the great responsibility we have to support the children and families who are in crisis," Deloach said. "Staff worked very hard for this accreditation, and I am extremely proud of their efforts and our community."

Accreditation is an objective and reliable verification that provides confidence and support to an organization's service recipients, board members, staff and community partners, said Christina Kaiser, Devereux CBC director of community relations.

The process involves a detailed review and analysis of both an organization's administrative operations and its service delivery practices.

All of these practices are measured against national standards of best practice.

Devereux CBC began the intensive process of accreditation in 2014, said Kaiser.

"This process brought us closer as an agency," she said. "It really demonstrates our dedication to one another and to our collective mission."
