About Us

Our story began when local Exchange Club members Lewis Pittman, William Pretsch, Bob Williams and fellow Exchangites raised funds to establish a Family Center, training volunteers to mentor parents whose families were in trouble because of anger and violence.

Since 1982, we've helped thousands of local families conquer anger and abuse, to have healthy relationships at home, work and school, What started as a home visitation service for families in crisis has evolved into a full-service mental health and education agency offering counseling, group therapy, assessments, anger management classes, parenting support, and conflict resolution. Our work has always been a two generation model with the goal of ending the cycle of violence.

In 2018, we re-introduced ourselves under a new name, Kindred Place.

For more than 30 years we've helped adults and children find peace, ending the cycle of anger, violence, aggression and trauma inside their homes. Because the past doesn't have to be the future.

Our staff of 35 includes licensed counselors and social workers who are trained to work with both victims of violence and family aggressors.

Our mission is to end family violence.
