The Dispute Resolution Center (DRC) is a nonprofit serving Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties in New York. We provide mediation, education, and training to promote peaceful resolution of conflict.
Mediation is a voluntary, confidential settlement process used by families and community members as an alternative to going to court. Mediation can be court-referred or self-referred.
We now do virtual mediations.
CASA are specially trained volunteers who are assigned to represent children and act as a neutral party in family court matters, monitoring court orders and acting as the voice of the child.
Volunteers are the voice of the child in court.
Parents Apart classes are for co-parents who want to learn effective strategies for parenting apart, and how to emotionally support their children during a transition in the family unit.
Our classes are now taught online.
