The Mediation Center of Dutchess County Academic Partnership
The mission of the Mediation Center of Dutchess County is to provide and promote conflict prevention, management, and resolution services and education to individuals, families, businesses, and organizations in our community. The Center’s mediators share values such as integrity, impartiality, self-determination, and diversity and use these values to help people have the conversations they need to have so that they can make decisions, better understand themselves and each other and move forward.
The Mediation Center of Dutchess County has mediation available for a variety of different circumstances including, matters that could otherwise go to small claims court. Mediation is also offered for divorce, custody disputes, child support, workplace services, special education, agricultural matters and automobile “lemon law” cases. These services help people to become clearer about what’s important to them, help them understand each other’s perspective and reach a better outcome.
