The Dispute Resolution Center of Washtenaw and Livingston Counties seeks to build peaceful communities by offering a variety of affordable conflict resolution services and trainings.
The Dispute Resolution Center has over 130 trained volunteer mediators who conducted over 500 mediations in 2007 and donated 1100 hours. They represent a great many professional and community backgrounds including attorneys, educators, social service and health professionals, community leaders and more. For every conflict, our staff carefully chooses a mediation team of one or two mediators whose education and experience most closely match the issues and the people involved in the conflict.
The Dispute Resolution Center can assist in resolving a variety of disputes including:
- Adult Guardianship/Caregiver
- Child Guardianship
- Small Claims
- Civil Rights
- Special Education
- Peer Mediation
The DRC will not mediate disputes which involve the use of threat or violence or in situations where drug and alcohol abuse or mental illness are part of the problem.
