Current Safety Policies During the COVID-19 Outbreak

During this period of uncertainty and stress, it is helpful to seek ways to use effective communication skills, be flexible, and open to new ideas. The unique role of community mediation centers is anchored in a belief that through connection and curiosity, we find opportunity, understanding, and meaningful ways to creatively solve problems. We also find ways to strengthen our relationships and care for one another, even if from a distance. We are not alone. We are a community.

We have assembled current resources to help your mental health and well-being, how to help your kids deal with this public health situation, and more. These resource lists are available here.

We take the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff seriously. Therefore, our physical office is closed to the general public. However, facilitated communication is absolutely essential in this environment, so we will continue providing conflict analysis, coaching, mediation, and conflict resolution services via phone and web conference. All in-person services are paused. Trainings will be provided via web conference when possible.

Our staff is also exploring alternative modes of service delivery and we will make those options available as soon as we identify creative ways to stay connected and support our community while adhering to health and safety policies. Updates will be posted on our website, social media, and email newsletter regarding adjustments to our operations.

Questions? Let us know. Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.

Thanks to United Way of the Columbia Gorge, special funding is infusing local schools with Restorative Practices programming, helping develop conflict resolution skills, frustration tolerance, and connected school community.
