Varied Community Support Service
We provide no cost mediation and other conflict resolution services to residents of Calvert County. Mediation is voluntary, confidential, and the mediators are non-judgmental and neutral. Trained mediators support your conversation and help you listen to others and be heard. We empower people to develop their own solutions. Mediation is available for individuals, families, neighbors, spouses, divorce and parenting plan, prison re entry, school, business, and others. We also provide Community Conferencing, a restorative justice approach to resolving school issues that promotes accountability and inclusion rather than punishment. We also provide training to agencies, businesses, and schools.
