Audit Scores

GAScore audits every foster care agency in Georgia each quarter, and the results below show that an outside agency verifies that Goshen Valley is doing elite work. We believe this data, paired with the stories we share more frequently, gives a fuller picture of the operating excellence you have made possible at Goshen.

What do these scores mean? Scores are based on safety, permanency, and well-being for the youth we serve. High scores imply that an organization is doing everything in its power to ensure the youth they serve have a fair chance at abundant life.

These audits are completed by GA Score, an independent agency who audits all fostering agencies in Georgia. Overall scores are expressed on a 0-110 scale- a 0-100 base score with a potential bonus 10 incentive points. Each of our programs far exceeds the state average for similar organizations:
