Welcome to Community Solutions of Central Oregon, where our focus is helping people have difficult conversations.

The need for dispute resolution throughout Central Oregon has never been greater. With ever increasing growth across the tri-county region, a broad range of community, business, and family conflicts continue into 2020.

UPDATED Monday, May 11th, 2020

Our offices are now open for limited hours beginning the week of Monday, May 11th following an eight-week closure due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis. We've delayed essential services for much-needed court, foreclosure, family and community casework during that time and will be transitioning to full time services over the coming weeks.

We have put precautionary measures in place if meeting with existing and/or new clients. These measures include detailed office cleaning, provision of disposable face masks for clients and mediators, and appropriate distancing during meetings, training, or mediation activities. We will tentatively reopen full time on Monday, May 25th during regular office hours from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm PST.  

We are returning to in-person, teleconference, or online dispute resolution (ODR) for select cases. See our 'Adaptive Services' update in the 'News/Announcements' page of our website for further details.

For current clients; a staff member will be in touch to discuss next steps and rescheduling options. For inquiries about our services; we will be checking phone and email messages during this time and someone will get back to you at the earliest opportunity.

Helping people have difficult conversations, 

Gary Winterstein
Executive Director
