FLCS Checks & Balances
To ensure that each client is handled with the utmost respect and professionalism, each of our counselors are certified through one of two certifying organizations. Our counselors are required to maintain certification and to participate in continuing education throughout the year.
In addition to maintaining certification through one of two organizations, each counselor is also trained in Biblical principles for handling money through the use of materials from Crown Financial Ministries.
Feel free to review each certifying organization and the standards they have in place.
Family Life Credit Services is a member of AICCCA. The Association of Independent Consumer Credit Counseling Agencies (AICCCA) is a national membership organization, established to promote quality and consistent delivery of credit counseling services.
The Association fulfills its mission by establishing a consensus among consumer professionals regarding service standards and professional industry conduct, as well as by establishing and maintaining strong relationships with credit management professionals and consumers.
We are accredited through The Council on Accreditation (COA). COA has established itself as a leading accreditation organization around the world.
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). Originally known as an accrediting body for family and children’s agencies, COA currently accredits 38 different service areas and over 60 types of programs. Among the service areas are substance abuse treatment, adult day care, services for the homeless, foster care, and intercountry adoption.
COA views accreditation as a catalyst for change that builds on an organization’s strengths and helps it achieve better results in all areas. The accreditation process is designed to meet the needs of diverse organizations. An organization is evaluated against best-practice standards, which are developed using a consensus model with input from a wide range of service providers, funders, experts, policymakers and consumers.
