Family Service Counseling Center of Wood County, a service location of Family Service of Northwest Ohio, has been reaccredited by the Council of Accreditation according to James E. Jones, President and CEO.
Family Service of Northwest Ohio,  1616 E. Wooster St., received its initial accreditation for COA in 1981, and has maintained this level ever since.
COA accreditation attests that an organization meets the highest national standards and is delivering the best quality services to the community it serves.  Accreditation is determined through an in-depth examination of the organization's compliance with the best practice standards.  COA is an international, independent not-for-profit accrediting body which "promotes best-practice standards; champions quality service of children, youth, and families and advocates for the value of accreditation."
All Family Service of Northwest Ohio locations - in Toledo, Bowling Green, Wauseon, Defiance, Bryan and Napoleon - and all services provided therein, received this re-accreditation status.   "We are extremely proud of this accomplishment, COA has a very high standard, and as rigorous as the self study and the site visits are, it is very gratifying to hear their final approval.  Family Service has always worked hard to be the best, and a validation of this magnitude is really something to celebrate," Jones said.
Family Service of NW Ohio, and the Family Service Counseling Center of Wood County, is a non profit agency that empowers families to manage life's challenges by providing high quality and affordable counseling, home care, outreach, advocacy, and prevention education services to Northwest Ohio Families.  Programs and services are funded in part by Lucas County Board of Mental Health & Recovery Services, Wood County ADAMhs Board, Four County ADAMhs Board, the Area Office on Aging, the United Way of Greater Toledo, United Way of Fulton, Defiance, Henry and Williams Counties and CJCC.

PERRYSBURG -  A faith-based facility is finding great success at its Perrysburg site.
A Renewed Mind (A.R.M.) recently held an open house to showcase its new location at 1090 W. South Boundary, Suite 600 in Perrysburg.
They provide counseling and other services for people who face mental health and addiction challenges.
According to Matt Rizzo, vice president of clinical operations, the 501c non-profit organization began originally at St. James Holiness Church on Nebraska Avenue in Toledo.
From that church they have expanded to their own facility in Toledo, a satellite site in Findlay, along with the Perrysburg location. They continue to be a faith-based organization
"Faith is very important to the history and culture of our organization, as well as to our providing community-based services," Rizzo said.
The A.R.M. organization originally opened a Perrysburg site in August of 2011. The new larger site followed this August.
"We've been at the site in Perrysburg as of the first of August. When we began, it was a one-man band, that was me," said Nancy Bowman, who heads the Perrysburg service area.
As their clients and services have grown Bowman says they have hired both a therapist and a receptionist for Perrysburg. "We've been adding services as we go along."

Wood County Common Pleas Court Judge Alan Mayberry has announced he is seeking reelection to the Wood County Common Pleas Court where he has served since 2003. He filed for re-election on Friday.
Elected to four terms as prosecuting attorney, his 23 years of service in that office is the longest in the history of Wood County.
Mayberry also previously served as a court referee and on Bowling Green City Council.
"I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the community where I grew up, and I look forward to continuing in that service on the Common Pleas Court bench," he said.
Mayberry is a graduate of Bowling Green High School and Bowling Green State University. While at BGSU he served as a justice on the Student Court and was on the dean's list, graduating in just three years. He graduated from the University of Toledo School of Law.
He began his career as a prosecutor while still in law school, serving as an intern-prosecutor in the Bowling Green Municipal Court. "I knew right then that my interest was in criminal law," he said. In 1980 he was hired as an assistant prosecuting attorney, and was quickly promoted to chief assistant by newly-elected Prosecutor Betty D. Montgomery.
