Ways We Can Help
Mediators assist individuals with a wide range of issues, including family and neighborhood conflicts, landlord-tenant issues, group and organizational conflicts and family care decisions for elderly adults.
Mediators help parents and teens talk together to create their own solutions.
Mediators help parents develop plans for caring for their children when those parents are no longer living together. Assisting divorcing couples in working through issues related to property and support.
These mediations are for inmates at the St. Mary’s Detention Center. Many inmates are faced with challenges that can be addressed prior to their release such as housing, parenting and employment. If the inmate can have a conversation with relatives or friends to address those challenges, transition back into society may go more smoothly for everyone. Re-entry mediation programs are currently in eighteen Maryland prisons and detention centers.
In addition to offering free mediation services, the Center also offers facilitation services to businesses, organizations and agencies to help them build stronger teams and work together more effectively.
