Innovative Thinkers

The Kindness Squad was the first human services agency in the state to develop a program which turns parents, who have been reunified with their children into mentors for parents who have lost custody of their children and want to reunify with them.

Connecting with the Community

The Kindness Squad is using the latest in technology to connect with the people it helps. Video conferencing gives our clients the convenience of signing documents and interviewing for services via video conferencing.

The Kindness Squad life

Employees audition and collaborate to create scripts for training videos.

Yes, we do have fun.
