MCC has transitioned to online for many of the services we offer. Our certified mediators and teachers are ready to provide you with the same quality guidance and information you can expect in person. For Co-Parenting class information, please visit the Co-Parenting Class page. To schedule a mediation session using videoconferencing, contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help!
Through a partnership between the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation and Bama Works, Dorothy Batten, UVA Community Health, and Twice is Nice, the Mediation Center of Charlottesville was awarded a $10,000 Community Recovery & Catalyst Grant to help support MCC’s general operations through the uncertain times of COVID-19. We are most grateful!
We are pleased to announce the Mediation Center has received a $5,000 grant in support of our programs. This is the fourth grant we have received from the Bama Works Fund since late 2015, and we are grateful for the continued support!
Named in honor of longtime MCC mediator, volunteer, and supporter Judy Morton, this scholarship will cover 100% of the recipient’s fee for the Basic Mediation Skills course.
