Mediation Process

  1. Contact us, we’ll help you assess your situation and how we can help – no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.
  2. If mediation is appropriate, we ask for the contact information of those involved.
  3. We then invite the other person(s) to a mediation session and address their questions and concerns.
  4. When all parties agree to a convenient time and a safe place, we schedule the mediation session with two of our trained volunteer mediators. If you need more information about preparing for your mediation, please visit the Mediation Preparation page.
  5. During the mediation session, everyone is given time to speak in a supportive environment.
  6. If an understanding or agreement is reached, the mediators will to put it into writing.
  7. If additional sessions are necessary, we’ll schedule those as needed.
