Building Bright Futures chose to undergo an affiliate accreditation process through the national program, called the Quality Endorsement and Improvement process.
To earn an the highest recognition, Blue Ribbon accreditation, an affiliate must meet or exceed all 17 Essential Requirements, and also meet at least 75% of the additional Parents as Teachers Quality Standards.
We Are Proud to Say We Met or Exceeded All 17 Essential Requirements and Met 92% of the Quality Standards.
We are honored to be part of such an esteemed program that truly changes the lives of the people we serve:
“No words can truly describe how thankful I am to his program and to [Parent Educator] Vanessa for her patience with me, for her kind words through the worst of times, for the empathy she showed me, for her care to my beautiful son, and for her endless amount of wisdom and resources. She embodies what a Parent Educator should be: kind, well-informed, and compassionate. I am now seeing improvement in my son on a daily basis, both through milestones and feedings, and Vanessa has been a big part of getting him here.” ~ T.L, Building Bright Futures parent
