Community Mediation Program Map

Community Mediation Does Amazing Work. NAFCM Promotes It!

With over 400 community mediation programs operating throughout North America, these programs make a real difference every day. As a field, we have a lot to be proud of. With all these programs' regularly updating services and contact information, NAFCM has a lot for us to stay on top of.

NAFCM strives to maintain a complete, accurate list of all community mediation programs available to assist those in conflict. To make this list accessible to those in need, we've made it freely available on NAFCM's website as an interactive online map.

Each month, this map is accessed thousands of times by those in conflict seeking nearby assistance. It helps families locate programs to help with parent/teen mediations. It helps neighbors find more constructive options than relying upon code enforcement to encourage neighborly behavior. It helps local organizational leaders find a skilled facilitator for a difficult upcoming meeting. This map connects people facing all manner of conflicts to an entire field that's prepared, ready, and willing to help. We encourage anyone confronted with a particularly difficult situation to explore this online map and contact a nearby community mediation center to discover which services may be available for you.

We also encourage our colleagues throughout the field to regularly review and update the contact information contained on this map to ensure the public continues to have the best possible resource when called upon. Help NAFCM ensure it has your program's most accurate contact information. Confirm and, if necessary, update the details of your program. (Lend a hand by updating a neighboring program's info, as well!)

We're proud of the incredible work performed throughout the community mediation network. And we're very pleased to help make their work more accessible via the Community Mediation Program Map.

In community,
Executive Director, NAFCM
