The Reason for Hope Receives 2-Year Behavioral Health Center of Excellence Accreditation

Houston, TX – ​The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has recognized The Reason for Hope with a 2-Year Accreditation, acknowledging the organization as a top behavioral service provider in the country. The BHCOE Accreditation recognizes exceptional behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff satisfaction and qualifications, and consumer satisfaction. These areas are measured via a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, a detailed staff qualification review, anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and anonymous consumer satisfaction survey.

“The Reason for Hope is a fantastic example of commitment to ethical, effective care,” said Sara Gershfeld Litvak, Founder of BHCOE, “They are dedicated to providing top-quality, evidence-based programming while utilizing best practices in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to support their clients in making significant progress and improving their quality of life. We are excited to congratulate Founder and Clinical Director Hellen Adedipe and her team on running a program that is truly an incredible resource for the Houston area community and beyond.”

BHCOE Accreditation is the only ABA-specific accreditation. It provides feedback regarding clinical best practices, staff satisfaction and turnover, and consumer protection. Acting as a third-party, the organization systematically measures and reports on existing quality criteria in the behavior analysis community using standardized methods and practices, and accredits only those service agencies that meet these standards.

“At The Reason for Hope, we believe that all children can reach their fullest potential with therapeutic support from our compassionate and knowledgeable team,” said Founder and Clinical Director Hellen Adedipe, MA, BCBA. “Our staff is comprised of skilled individuals who have a genuine love for children with special needs and work together to help each child move towards success. Earning the BHCOE Accreditation is an exciting honor because it reflects our commitment to providing high-quality care to improve the lives of our clients and their families. We’re thankful to have a staff that is dedicated to helping our clients make meaningful progress and made achieving this Accreditation possible.”
