The Midshore Mediation Center has been an organization that UUFE has supported financially for a number of years because of the free service it provides to so many in the community. We have also supported it by becoming volunteer mediators. At last count 9 members have been or currently are active mediators. Two UUFE members currently serve on the board.
Mediation is a voluntary and confidential problem-solving process in which two non-judgmental mediators help two or more people develop solutions to their conflict. Community mediation is facilitated by highly trained volunteers committed to abiding by the Maryland Standards of Conduct for Mediators
. The confidentiality of mediation is protected by the Maryland Mediation Confidentiality Act
. Community mediators guide the participants through a process that helps identify problems, generate solutions and create agreements acceptable to both. Mediation is scheduled at a time and place convenient to the participants. Mid Shore Mediation has locations across Dorchester, Talbot and Caroline counties.
