a place for PEACEFUL PROBLEM SOLVING
MEDIATION, TRAINING, AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS:
Eviction Resolution Program (ERP)
Attestation: The Spokane County Eviction Resolution Pilot Program, delivered through the Northwest Mediation Center and Fulcrum Institute Dispute Resolution Clinic, is operational as described in Governor Inslee's June 29, 2021, Proclamation 21-09.
When it comes to tenant/landlord relationships in COVID-times, things can get especially confusing and stressful.
The Eviction Resolution Program Pilot (ERPP) was designed late last year to help bridge this communication gap and help landlords and tenants try to work things out together. It's confidential, and it's free.

STATEMENT FROM OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
NMC stands for this principle: Transparent, respectful dialogue can turn a destructive, or potentially destructive, conflict into productive collaboration toward peaceful problem-solving. We urge you who are passionately engaged in the active pursuit of “liberty and justice for all” (regardless of your position on how to get there) to seek timely, strategic engagement in dialogue. Seek dialogue before emotions have become so raw that intimidation, retribution and violence seem to be the only way to be heard.
The trained mediators at NMC continue to offer our fellow citizens non-judgmental, impartial facilitation, for individuals or groups, to initiate and sustain respectful dialogue and peaceful problem-solving.
Be well . . .
