For over 30 years, Yamhill County residents and community organizations have used the mediation program as a valuable resource to peacefully resolve conflict. In November, 2023, Your Community Mediators of Yamhill County and Neighbor to Neighbor, Inc. (also a mediation center in Oregon) joined together to offer continued services in Yamhill county. This consolidation was a result of friendship and mutual support. Multiple city councils in Yamhill County support mediation because they recognize the value of resolving conflict in their communities. Yamhill County Commissioners have defined mediation as an “essential service.”
Neighbor to Neighbor offers mediation training and outreach at local schools and colleges, and sponsors a basic mediation training annually that meets State of Oregon mediator requirements.
Neighbor to Neighbor is a member of the Oregon Office for Community Dispute Resolution, Oregon Mediation Association, and the National Association for Community Mediation.
Through the dedicated services provided by trained volunteer mediators, mediation is offered at no or low cost to all residents of Tillamook and Yamhill Counties.
