Community Mediation Services

Posted By: Judi Doan (June 3, 2016)
Community Mediation Services (CMS) is a county-wide non-profit agency that makes dispute resolution available at low cost or no cost to all the people in our area. CMS provides trained mediators to facilitate the conversation between people with a dispute and assists them in coming to an agreement. Mediators ask questions to clarify issues, discuss options available, reality test ideas for real-life application, and assure that each person is able to speak uninterrupted and be heard. The mediator will write the agreement, with the help and guidance of the participants, to assure that it is exactly what they want and what they are willing to participate in.

$1,000.00 would reduce the cost of mediation for up to 10 families with parenting time issues; landlord/tenant problems; neighbor concerns; association matters; employer/employee disputes; and the list goes on. Everyone in our community could use our service.
