About the Book
The Crown Heights Community Mediation Center is a unique neighborhood institution that works to improve community problem-solving, collaboration, and inter-group relations in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Operating out of our storefront offices since 1998, the Mediation Center seeks innovative ways to promote community cohesion in our neighborhood, known for fragmentation. This includes providing residents with links to resources on issues like education, parenting, housing, and immigration; providing support to young people navigating the challenges of a community tainted by violence, drugs, and poverty; and galvanizing neighborhood, borough, and city stakeholders in order to improve the quality of life for all residents. The Crown Heights Community Mediation Center is a project of the Center for Court Innovation. We are located at 256 Kingston Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. We can be reached by calling 718-773-6886 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
