“Our mission is to provide alternative responses to crime and conflict that encourage healing, accountability, competency and citizen involvement.”
The Community Mediation Program grew out of the realization that there was a lack of no cost mediation services available to individuals in need living in Boulder County, yet outside larger city limits already offering mediation services. Mediation is appropriate for many types of disputes if everyone involved is open to finding a resolution. Referrals are accepted from our Deputies, the Courts and the community. Community Mediation began offering mediation services in November, 2010. Our mediation services are available for all disputes except landlord/tenant. While our mediators have been professionally trained, we do not specialize in family law. The appropriateness of these cases for our program will be decided on a case by case basis.
Our mediation program is staffed by a group of professionally trained volunteers and is directed by a paid coordinator. The mediators come from a variety of backgrounds and have vast professional experience. All mediators have completed specialized mediation training and have demonstrated their success in resolving disputes. The mediators are neutral and impartial and do not represent or advocate for either party in the dispute, nor do they offer legal advice.
