The Mandell Gisnet Center offers low cost mediation services to community members through the Neighbor Project. This program was established several years ago as a result of a tragedy that occurred in our County resulting from a neighbor dispute. At the Mandell Gisnet Center we encourage early resolution of disputes before they escalate. We provide skilled mediators to guide the parties to a successful result. We also offer peer mediation training to community groups who may be interested in developing or expanding mediation and communication skills. To set a Neighbor Project mediation or a community training contact us today.

Our process of mediation initiation usually takes between 2 to 4 weeks before a mediation session is scheduled. Mediation is a voluntary process. A case developer will work with both sides to determine if mediation is a good fit for the situation.
Once both parties have agreed to mediate, they will receive up to 3 hours of mediation with 2 to 3 mediators.
In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.
We view conflict as on opportunity for growth and change.
Nominal $25 fee for each side once a mediation is scheduled.
Professionally trained community members and licensed attorney volunteers.
