Built on the core insight that the most powerful kind of endorsement is a positive recommendation from a friend, Kindred services are focused around building lasting relationships with our clients’ most influential advocates.

We live here; we share the same love for this place; we want to see a vibrant future for our community. Because we’re Kindred, we inherently value our friends’ (a.k.a. clients’) vital organizations and missions. Together we have a vested interest in helping them succeed. To this end, the Collective works primarily with local businesses, nonprofits and rural governments throughout southwest Colorado to craft custom marketing and outreach programs with a unique eye toward community-building and regional collaboration.

 The Kindred team believes that “when we invest our time and talents in the rural communities where we live – we all prosper.” That’s why, “we’re community driven by design.”
