The Mediation Network of North Carolina
 

The Mediation Network of North Carolina (MNNC) is the umbrella organization for 20 community mediation centers operating across North Carolina. Many community mediation centers provide an array of mediation services to the residents of the counties or regions that they serve, including mediation of disputes between: neighbors, businesses/professionals and their customers, landlords and tenants, and family members, including divorce mediation and mediation between parents and teens. A few centers also make other forms of dispute resolution, such as arbitration, available. Services are usually very affordable. Centers operate through a combination of staff and volunteers.

Many centers are also at work within community institutions: serving North Carolina courts by helping those involved in misdemeanor criminal cases resolve their disputes, working with schools to make peer and truancy mediation programs available, and helping governmental entities, interest groups and citizens address and resolve public policy disputes. Centers operate both in urban and rural areas. Centers serving rural areas tend to be organized regionally and serve a larger territory. To learn more about the centers and the services they provide, visit the MNNC website at www.mnnc.org. For more information, you may call the MNNC's Executive Director, Jody Minor, at (336) 461-3300 or contact the center nearest you. If you live in a county that is not covered by a center, contact Jody Minor.

Four community mediation centers operate independently of the Network and should be contacted directly. Those centers are:
