Welcome to Resolve

 Your nonprofit center for dispute resolution
and restorative justice, serving southern Oregon since 1990.

Dear Friend of Resolve,
I am writing to ask you to consider a tax deductible donation to Resolve Center for Dispute Resolution and Restorative Justice.
Resolve continues to grow in service to our community. Last year, Resolve served 6,575 Southern Oregonians through an array of dispute resolution services, including foreclosure avoidance facilitation and mediation for individuals and businesses. Our staff and volunteers also provided restorative justice education and services for 5,315 adults and youth. This year Resolve will positively impact 7,575 students and 556 educators.
Restorative Justice in School Works
Schools that engage in restorative justice practices experience a drop in suspensions, improved attendance, reduced classroom disruptions, decreased behavior referrals, and improved academic performance and graduation rates.
With restorative justice, students and staff feel a greater sense of belonging, safety, pride and empowerment. When vandalism, disruptive behavior and bullying can be addressed by the school community, a safer learning environment is the result.
In 2015, Resolve received a pledge of $30,000 a year, for four years to support school connected restorative justice. This tremendous gift from our “angel of good will” has made so much growth, creativity, and service possible. As knowledge of the power of restorative justice spreads, the demand keeps growing. Will you add to this generous donation and help us serve our schools?
I hope I can count on you to remember Resolve in your holiday giving this year, and be a part of building and sustaining a just and peaceful community for all.

With Warm Regards and Gratitude,
Deltra Ferguson, Executive Director

Interrupting Hate in Public Space

Do you have the passion to help children learn skills to end bullying? Resolve’s ChoicePoint bullying intervention and bystander empowerment program works with students in regional K-8 classrooms. Interactive lessons and activities help students identify bullying behavior, practice effective intervention techniques, build empathy and increase connection with their classmates. 

Interested in becoming a Restorative Justice Practitioner? Resolve has a few restorative justice practicum positions available for committed community members. Resolve will provide a supervised pathway that includes training, mentorship, and skill development in exchange for a minimum one year volunteer commitment.
