The Dispute Settlement Center, serving Western CT, is a model agency for the valuable role that mediation can play in the life of communities. DSC works in the schools, in the courts,among neighbors and within families to find constructive, mutally satisfying alternatives to settle disputes. DSC educates young people to resolve conflict through mediation and relieves the courts of ever increasing dockets through mediated settlements.DSC has helped renters and homeowners avoid eviction and foreclosure and given police departments alternative options for handling offenses within communities. Mediation is a humane and thoughtful alternative to resolving disputes and strengthens communities by reducing resentment and recidivism. DSC has documented approaches and data to show the impact and value of its work.
