The Mediation Center

WHAT THEY DO: Since 1984, the Mediation Center has helped community members find common ground and a way through difficult and stressful conflict. Participants are families, youths, neighbors and organizations, as well as people impacted by incarceration, who work through conflict and reach agreements on their own terms. The Mediation Center also provides supervised child visitation to ensure children can stay connected to both of their parents despite past violence or abuse. By helping community members resolve conflict, the Mediation Center creates a safer and more peaceful community for everyone.

This issue had been going on for a while, and it just seemed like nothing would come of doing mediation — but I was really surprised! We actually reached some meaningful agreements!
