The organization was originally formed in 1993 as the Dispute Resolution Center of Lewis County by a group of concerned citizens, Lewis County Bar Legal Aid and the Lewis County Commissioners. The name of the organization was legally changed to Community Mediation Center of Lewis County in 2007.
Community Mediation Center (CMC) is a 501 (c) (3) corporation that has been providing alternative dispute resolution services to the people of Lewis and Cowlitz Counties since it was created.
In 2021 our services began also including ERPP services to both Lewis and Cowlitz Counties.
“Community Mediation Center nurtures healthy relationships in our community by teaching strategic, respectful communication, and by facilitating necessary conversations between those in conflict.”
