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.

Our offices are now open following an eight-week closure due to the public health crisis this Spring. Previous delays in providing essential services throughout the communities we serve have been addressed and we've now transitioned back to regular office hours, Mon-Fri 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.

In line with State back to work orders, precautionary measures in place now include detailed office cleaning, appropriate distancing, and the provision of disposable face masks for clients, staff, and volunteers during meetings, training, or mediation activities. 

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

Helping people have difficult conversations,

Executive Director
