One local non-profit organization gave people the opportunity to learn a little more about what they do in the community.

Members of the Mediation Center of Charlottesville held a pancake breakfast at the Vinegar Hill Café in the Jefferson School City Center on Saturday morning.

Members of the community were able to come out and meet the directors of the center as well as get a better understanding of what the Mediation Center does.

The executive director says they are use when disputes are handled outside of the court system.

“There are many disputes that can be settled amicably, quickly and for far less money by using mediation,” says Van Parker, executive director. “We don't tell them what to do we help them find their own solution, that is the key point of mediation.”

Some of the situations they work with include family issues, landlord/tenant disputes as well as issues within local governments.
