News & Updates

Greetings, friends and followers:

Community Mediation is sad to announce a period of reduced activity as our Board of Directors presses PAUSE to step back and reassess the current and future context for our work.  Our current staff will all be leaving by the end of November, and we will close the office at 3013 Dixwell by the end of the year.

We are glad to announce that we are undertaking a re-visioning process!  We will be reaching out soon to engage all of you, and other community partners and stakeholders, in a series of meetings and events.  We will imagine together how we can best manifest our vision of inclusive communities whose members collaborate to resolve conflict effectively.   Our new mailing address as of 12/1/17:

We offer FREE Mediation Services to Veterans!

Are you a veteran who is experiencing conflict with someone? Do you know a veteran who is having a conflict with someone? Supported by the generosity of donors, Community Mediation has trained local veterans to become mediators and set-up a program to offer free mediation services to veterans who are struggling with a conflict using our trained service members as impartial facilitators.  Conflicts come in all sizes and shapes and are everywhere. You may be a tenant having conflict with your landlord, or you could be having conflict with a business, a family member, or you could be in conflict with a supervisor, co-worker, neighbor or going through a divorce. Our veteran mediators can help you resolve your conflict through mediation, which is a confidential and self-determined process.  Our Intake Coordinator, Jacques Lewis, will be happy to hear from you—call him at (203) 782-3508 or email
