The Community Youth Mediation Program was founded in 1981. Over 500 community residents received mediation training and mediated over 2000 youth conflicts.
In 1992 a strategic planning process resulted in a name-change and a new mission. The agency became the Cleveland Mediation Center. Mission:
To promote constructive conflict resolution, especially among youth, and to strengthen community ties primarily through mediation and mediation training.
CMC became involved with homelessness when it was requested to mediate between a local service provider and the community. CMC has since been called to assist in public policy disputes regarding service to the homeless. Its Homeless Prevention program has grown to where over 2000 households were assisted in 2001.
CMC provides these mediation/conflict resolution services:
1) School Truancy
2) Neighbor to neighbor
4) Public policy & community disputes
5) Dissolution of Marriage
7) Group & intra-agency
