Our Story

Optimistic Beginnings

Kathy Aronson was inspired to serve people with developmental disabilities while volunteering in high school as a Special Education Peer Tutor. After receiving her degree in Family and Community Services from the University of Oregon, she worked in the social services field as a Proctor Care Coordinator, Residential Director, and DD Case Manager. In 2001, a shrinking budget at the county level brought an end to Kathy’s employment, but her desire to serve those with developmental disabilities continued to grow.

While providing care for a family member, she gained a renewed belief in the importance of carefully matching clients with their care givers. With an optimistic and innovative spirit, Kathy founded Renew Consulting LLC. in 2004. At the heart of the new company was a dedication to providing the greatest service possible. She began by offering Behavior Consultation along with CPR, First Aid, and OIS Training out of her modest home office, which consisted of a laptop computer and a $10 file cabinet.

Growth and Challenges

The need for client services rapidly grew, so key team members were hired as part of the development process for the new Training and Staff Placement Programs. In 2005, the company’s offices moved to downtown Salem. Supported Living and Vocational/ATE programs were soon added. The first of Renew Consulting’s 24-hour Residential Homes opened in 2007, and by the end of that year, the company’s offices moved to downtown Albany, Kathy's hometown. Every opportunity to meet needs brought its own unique set of challenges and Renew Consulting soon earned a reputation for innovation, transparency, and unprecedented dedication to its clients.

Between 2008 and today, growth has been steady as more homes were opened and staffed with Certified Support Providers serving individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health needs. Architect Andy Aronson (Kathy's husband and co-owner of Renew Consulting) coordinated the design and remodeling of the company's current headquarters on Old Salem Road in Albany where the offices moved in April of 2011.

Today and Beyond

Today, Renew Consulting is represented in nine Northwest Oregon counties by more than 300 team members dedicated to providing the greatest service possible. Four regional offices are located in Albany, Lincoln City, Dallas, and Beaverton. As CEO, Kathy remains actively involved in the leadership of the company, continuously developing innovative ways to meet complex social, behavioral and medical needs.
