Community Involvement

From Resolutions Northwest: "Resolutions Northwest is a unique organization in the Portland area providing a wide range of mediation and facilitation services that help community members find solutions to conflict. By working with real people and providing real help in conflict resolution, Resolutions Northwest works to make Portland a more livable community. We help families, neighborhoods and communities creatively address conflict. Whether the conflict is interpersonal, like two neighbors trying to resolve conflict over barking dogs, clucking chickens or untrimmed bushes and trees; or helping groups of neighbors create a good neighbor agreement around the sighting of a domestic violence shelter, our mission is to teach principles of conflict resolution that empower each person we work with to contribute to a fairer, more just and more equitable community. We are building peace resolving one conflict at a time."
