About Us

The CRC helps to resolve conflicts by providing trained mediators in a safe, private space where people can listen to and be heard by each other.

Our Mission

To provide professional dispute resolution services that are accessible to all.
To be a leader in the St. Louis area in promoting, peaceful, lasting and effective solutions to conflict.

What We Do

Mediation helps people reach agreements, rebuild relationships, and find permanent solutions to their disputes. Mediation is a process that lets people speak for themselves and make their own decisions. The Conflict Resolution Center provides a non-profit framework for assuring access to mediation services at the community level with control and responsibility for dispute resolution maintained in the community. We engage in collaborative initiatives with citizens and organizations to promote peaceful outcomes.

Our Mediators

CRC mediators are professionally trained volunteers who live and work in St. Louis. Two neutral mediators facilitate each session. Mediators are not judges; they do not take sides, or offer suggestions. They guide the participants through the mediation process.
