Empowering individuals through positive change.

About KPEP

Since 1980, KPEP has provided residential services for people who need more structure than regular probation provides after they’re released from prison, KPEP offers the guidance, programs, services and encouragement residents need to become independent, contributing members of society. We work closely with all facets of the criminal justice system, including local law enforcement departments, corrections, probation and parole departments, as well as circuit court judges.

KPEP is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and is PREA certified.

Over the years, the populations served by KPEP have changed and now include felony probationers, state parolees, Drug Treatment Court participants, federal inmates, federal probationers, and clients who are on federal pre-trial status. In addition to the changing populations, KPEP has three facilities in Kalamazoo, as well as facilities in Benton Harbor, Muskegon, Battle Creek, and Paw Paw.  All six facilities are licensed by the State of Michigan to provide substance abuse treatment, and in September 2013, all six KPEP facilities became accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
