The Dispute Settlement Center (DSC) of Henderson County is supported by the Local Mission Ministry as part of Trinity’s budget for missions. The mission of DSC is “to offer and promote alternative dispute resolution processes – including mediation, conciliation, facilitation, and training – as ways for peacefully resolving conflicts”.  The agency utilizes a professional staff as well as volunteers who are trained facilitators and work with families, youth, and others. A relatively new program teaches skills that can improve life transitions for the elderly, their family members, caregivers and service providers through improved communications and conflict resolution skills.  All services are confidential and a sliding fee schedule applies.  For more information or to volunteer call (828) 697-8528.
