About Us
Established in 1987, the Transformation Center, operating under the name Kiva Centers, is an entirely peer-run organization, meaning every person identifies as having their own lived experience with mental health, trauma, and/or substance use recovery. This personal experience forms the basis for our community programming, advocacy, and systems change. At the core of our mission is the unwavering commitment to transform policies and practices within communities and systems. We operate as an ecosystem of programs and supports, addressing the multifaceted needs of behavioral health, substance use recovery, and trauma healing in local communities. Our programs encompass trauma-informed training, workforce development, technical assistance, direct peer support, crisis support, networking, and relief aid. For the past fifteen years, we have played a pivotal role in the healthcare system by training and certifying all Certified Peer Specialists in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We also operate three peer-run respites, a 24/7 crisis alternative to prevent psychiatric hospitalization. Nestled in Worcester, MA, our vibrant Recovery Learning Community serves as a nexus for individuals from all walks of life to engage in peer support. Here, we address a spectrum of issues, from breaking the cycle of intergenerational trauma to exploring art and navigating challenges faced by grandparents raising grandchildren.
Our organization is Indigenous-led and our work is grounded in the belief that genuine relationships are central to healing. We strive to build self-sustaining communities across generations, socioeconomic, racial, and cultural groups. Kiva Centers is an equal opportunity employer and encourages candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply. Our organization is committed to building leadership. If you have a dream related to systems change, peer support, advocacy or training, our organization will support the candidate in realizing their ideas. This position prepares a candidate for executive-level leadership.
