Children’s Friend is accredited by the Council on Accreditation, an international body that sets standards for child and family service agencies. Karen says, “If you asked me to sum up what Children’s Friend stands for in only four words, I’d say “caring, quality, collegiality and integrity.” It’s a great place to seek help and a wonderful place to work.
