“Using the power of conflict to build strong, stable and peaceful communities”

About

The Conflict Resolution Center Of Baltimore County envisions a world where the power of conflict is used to build strong, stable, and peaceful communities.

CRCBC Believes:

  • People are capable of resolving their own conflicts.
  • Every voice is important.
  • Conflict is better resolved through conversation than through violence or adversarial processes.
  • Solutions are more likely to stick when made by those most directly involved in the situation.
  • Strong communities are safe and stable communities, where relationships are built and connections are made between people.
  • It is important for people to learn constructive ways to resolve conflict.
  • High quality conflict resolution services lead to better solutions for all involved.
  • Everyone deserves access to high quality conflict resolution services.
