Thoughts from the President

Accreditation (posted 05/08/2018)
In addition to being licensed by the state of Missouri, MBCH has also been accredited by the Council on Accreditation since 1977. Accreditation is a four-year cycle and we just completed our site visit following our submission of our self-study to the Council. The site visit is conducted by a team of reviewers who spend time at the organization revieiwng records and interviewing staff, clients, board members, and other stakeholders.
While we do not yet have notification of our accreditation being continued, the deficiencies noted were very minor and we have submitted documentation to respond to them.
I want to share some of the comments that were made by the team members as they concluded their on-site review.
1. MBCH is mission driven.
2. Staff is passionate about the mission.
3. Staff wants to build relationships with clients and provide the best possible services.
4. Agency provides a wide diversity of services.
5. Agency is committed to becoming trauma-informed.
6. Strong focus on permanency for children.
7. Board is strategic driven and committed to mission.
One reviewer stated that she tries to find one word to describe each organization she reviews and her word for MBCH is "faith."
We are very pleased that our commitment to our Lord and to His children was very evident to the reviewers who visited us.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support as we join hands in serving God by responding to the needs of children, youth, and families to make a lasting difference in their lives.
