Quotes from participants

“I had no idea this was an option for dealing with my landlord. I’m so glad I heard about it from the housing people at Cal Poly. I was finally able to have a civil conversation with my landlord about my security deposit.”

“The City Planning Department made the referral and I’m grateful they did.”

“I was becoming desperate regarding the situation with my neighbor. She has called the police about barking dogs on numerous occasions over the past few months. Before mediation, we were not speaking to each other and things had become extremely tense in our neighborhood. Working together with the mediator, we were able to discuss the issues in a new way and actually come up with a working agreement for the future. I’d recommend mediation to anyone who is experiencing trouble with a neighbor.”

“My roommates and I were having a lot of difficulty living together and one was on the verge of moving out. Through mediation, we were able to really get all of the important issues out in the open and figure out how to improve the situation. We ended up continuing to all live together and communication was much easier after the mediation.”
