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.
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.
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.
