Part of Governor Baker's comprehensive Eviction Diversion Initiative is The Housing Mediation Program that uses mediation as a homelessness prevention and housing stability vehicle to help mitigate the human and economic costs of eviction.
Family Services of Central Mass is one of the MA Community Mediation Centers offering FREE mediation services to parties before, during, or after eviction notices have been filed in court. Their aim is to reach cases before they enter the legal system. By using mediation, parties may be able to avoid the costs and concerns of court involvement altogether. Their confidential mediation process is a way for the parties to have a conversation facilitated by two highly trained, neutral co-mediators, most often leading to a mutually acceptable agreement, which keeps the tenants stably housed and the landlords from mortgage foreclosure. When needed, interpreters can be arranged.
This presentation will be given by:
- Robin Bahr Casey, Housing Mediation Program Coordinator
- Norka Michelen N., Esq., Project Manager, Mediation Dept.
