About Us

Conflict Resolution Center (formerly known as CALM) offers FREE mediation to all Frederick County residents. Mediation is neutral, confidential, and voluntary – everyone must agree to participate. We are here to help you have difficult conversations to resolve conflict with colleagues/employers, family, friends, landlord/tenants, and neighbors – in any situation where there is conflict.

Our Mission:

Conflict Resolution Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit community service organization, which provides affordable and accessible conflict resolution services to all Frederick County residents through education, mediation, community conferencing, and facilitation. Conflict Resolution Center promotes peaceful resolution of conflicts. Conflict Resolution Center’s goal is to provide mediation services and education, resulting in:

Decreased civil court cases
Decreased sense of alienation by citizens
Increased number of qualified, practicing mediators
