Neighbor Project

The Neighbor Project

The Mandell Gisnet Center offers low cost mediation services to community members through the Neighbor Project. This program was established several year as ago as a result of a tragedy that occurred in our County resulting from a neighbor dispute. At the Mandell Gisnet Center we encourage early resolution of disputes before they escalate. We provide skilled mediators to guide the parties to a successful result. We offer peer mediation training to community groups who may be interested in developing or expanding mediation and communication skills. To set a Neighbor Project mediation or a community training, contact us today.
