Our Services Include:
District Court Day of Trial
These sessions can help participants resolve conflicts with family members, friends, neighbors, businesses, co-workers, and schools. Our mediators can also assist with landlord/tenant and roommate conflicts.
Our mediators are available in the District Court every Tuesday to assist with small claims cases referred by the judge. We can also mediate cases pre-trial to help avoid the time and cost of appearing in court.
These mediations can help separated, divorced or never married parents develop a plan for how they will share time and responsibility for raising their children.
Separation and Divorce Mediation
Specially trained mediators will meet with both parties to help them develop a mutually agreed upon plan for separation and/or divorce and can include property agreements.
Pretrial mediation offers litigants the opportunity to resolve their conflict outside of the court before their trial date. Mediators support parties in creating their own solution to the conflict, which can then be entered into the court record. This can save both parties the time and cost of going to court.
Facilitation and Organizational Development
Our trained facilitators can assist organizations with facilitated discussions about internal conflicts, planning for future development or other organizational issues. We can also aid in group discussions regarding community issues and conflicts.
Sheriff's Department Citizen-Deputy Mediations—Operation True Perspectives (OTP)
The first of its kind in the state, this mediation program is a different way of handling concerns or frustrations that citizens and police may have regarding their interaction with each other. Parties can benefit from face-to-face dialogue offering their different perspectives.
Maryland Commission on Civil Rights (MCCR)
Re-entry for Incarcerated Individuals
Mediation services can be provided regarding discrimination complaints when referred by the MCCR.
This service is provided to Detention Center inmates and their families to assist in the inmate’s successful transition back into the community.
Conflict coaching provides one-on-one private and confidential sessions with a conflict coach to help an individual discuss a conflict situation. Conflict coaching helps individuals explore ways to resolve disputes themselves. It focuses on assisting the participant to clarify the issues, explore their role in the conflict, and set goals to resolve the conflict.
Child in Need of Assistance (CINA)
Conflict Resolution Training
Mediators meet with family members and associated agencies to help develop plans for children in out-of-home placement. CINA cases are referred by the Circuit Court Family Services Division.
