Review for Resolutions Northwest, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Resolutions Northwest is a critical program to the Portland Metro Area offering positive conflict resolution through programs that include: neighborhood mediation, community facilitation and civic engagement, youth-focused restorative justice, and training and education. I have served as a volunteer mediator with the agency for a year and served on the board for almost 5 years. As all organization have been battered by the economy, Resolutions Northwest is staking our ground be creating a proactive and forward thinking strategic plan. Working with over 100 volunteers this agency delivers quality services and changes lives. While not perfect, the agency seeks to improve its weaker areas of outcome evaluation data and revenue diversification.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I could reference numerous mediation cases where two people sat at a table and over the course of an hour or two find ways to communicate honestly and with transparency and find common ground solutions to serious issues dividing them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create a comprehensive communications campaign and find deeper ways that the agency could collaborate with others.
