For over 35 years, DRC has provided mediation to help individuals, families, neighbors, government agencies, businesses, municipalities and community groups resolve a variety of issues.
We also provide:
- restorative processes to help individuals and communities harmed by crime.
- professional training to volunteers who serve as mediators in community settings as well as in the conciliation and housing courts.
- educational sessions about mediation, restorative justice and conflict resolution skills for schools, businesses and organizations
- professional continuing education for practicing mediators and those wanting to learn basic skills.
There is overwhelming need for DRC’s services throughout the East Metro area of the Twin Cities, and DRC has been committed to providing community dispute resolution services. Despite financial setbacks due to cuts in local-government aid, DRC has remained a viable and vital part of the community.
