Celebrating 35 Years
On October 25, 2018 the Mediation Center celebrated 35 years of Community Service at Locust Grove Estate in Poughkeepsie. The night was a huge success and a true testament to the immense amount of support for community mediation that we've had over the years. Special thanks goes to our sponsors, Board of Directors, staff, mediators, community partners, and attendees.
An immeasurable amount of gratitude goes to our three incredible honorees- Kathryn Lazar, Terry Funk-Antman and Jody Miller- for without your hard work and dedication, the Mediation Center would not be the success that it is today. Here's to another 35 years!

We value our judicial partners and thank them for their continued support of what we do!
