Cindy Kightlinger is the founder of Mercy House of Meadville, Inc. where she also serves as a therapist and drug and alcohol counselor. She founded Mercy House of Meadville, Inc. , in 2001 as a result of an idea that mental health and drug and alcohol could be done in a different way-serving people spiritually and physically, as well as emotionally. "Everything we do at Mercy House is done with that aim in mind. We think of ourselves as a family and the response that we most often hear is that , "it is so homey here, so comfortable." Even our mission statement of, "Restoring Hearts and Homes," reflects our core values. We put a lot of time, effort and resources into sourcing our community and region and with RecoverME Academy, hope to broaden that influence."

Rev. Kightlinger's credentials include certified addiction counselor, licensed professional counselor, certified gambling counselor, speaker and ordained minister. Her numerous speaking event include women retreats, pastor trainings, marital conferences and spiritual/inspirational guest speaking. She is also a certified Healing Touch Practitioner and Chinese Medical QiQong Practitioner. She has had dozens of freelance articles published in various magazines, is an author, and designs program material that is aimed at the heart-- which is a change for life, which she says is, "the only change worth investing in."
