WE LOVE WHAT WE DO
In 1991 the Jeff-Lewis Mediation Center, Inc. was established to provide alternative dispute resolution services for Jefferson and Lewis County citizens through the use of trained staff and volunteers. That same year CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was placed under the non-profit umbrella. In 1997 the agency began offering Family Court Custody and Visitation mediations and also launched the Youth Court Program. In 2004 the agency changed its name to the Resolution Center of Jefferson & Lewis Counties, Inc. to better reflect its diversified programming. Supervised visitation services were added in 2016.

The mission of The Resolution Center of Jefferson & Lewis Counties, Inc. is to administer and support its programs (Mediation, CASA, Conflict Resolution, and Youth Court) in part by providing a continuum of services including life skills, development, dispute resolution and child advocacy. Through trained volunteers and staff, we offer inclusive, innovative approaches to empower individuals to resolve conflict and achieve positive outcomes for children, families and the community.
Volunteers are the heart of the Resolution Center. Giving back to your community can be very rewarding.
Why start volunteering? People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
