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, April 6th, 2020
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, our offices remain closed as a continued precautionary measure now through Friday, April 17th. We will tentatively reopen on Monday, April 20th with limited office hours from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm PST.  

Our concern for staff members, mediators, and clients remains our top priority. As such, all appointments, meetings, and training events are being rescheduled into late April or later dates as the situation dictates. Additionally, we are preparing to begin conducting either teleconference or online dispute resolution (ODR) for select cases. See our 'Virtual 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


Office Closure a Continued Precaution

As we continue with a precautionary office closure, current and potential clients are being scheduled for appointments resuming no earlier than Monday, April 27th, 2020. This now includes all Pre-Trial, Home Foreclosure, Community, and Family casework that was previously planned during March 2020. As the current situation evolves, CS will continue to post updates about further precautionary measures and changes in scheduling, as needed. Our Home Foreclosure cases remain on schedule throughout the month of April and we will be contacting those homeowners with resolution conference appointments about how to attend via pre-arranged teleconference call.  For more on changes to our annual Basic Mediation Training (BMT) course, please note the following details.
