The mission of the Elna B. Spaulding Conflict Resolution Center is to provide the community with a different way to experience conflict and find a common ground through communication, cooperation, and understanding.
We desire to educate through training and by utilizing alternative dispute resolution models such as mediation and facilitation as positive approaches for resolving all types of issues or concerns.
Our goal is to help people to listen with an intent to understand each other and work cooperatively to reach a mutual agreement. As a non-profit organization, we strive to broadly serve the entire community and to keep our rates affordable.
