The mission of the Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center (PCRC) is to promote positive collaboration and active engagement by residents in the communities we serve. To accomplish this mission, PCRC trains people to communicate and solve problems together, facilitates group meetings, builds skills for public participation and, as a neutral third party, assists people in conflict to develop mutually acceptable agreements.
The Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center (PCRC), founded in 1986, is a public benefit corporation serving individuals, groups, and organizations throughout San Mateo County. We provide conflict prevention, management, and resolution services and promote the use of non-adversarial processes in a wide variety of situations. PCRC services empower people, build relationships, and reduce violence. As the major provider of community-based conflict management and prevention services in San Mateo County, PCRC can put its experience to work for you. Our small professional staff supports nearly 200 trained volunteers from many ethnic, social, educational and vocational backgrounds who serve as mediators, facilitators and communication trainers. Through its mediation programs, PCRC staff and volunteers help clients identify problems, clarify perspectives and concerns, develop viable options, and reach durable and mutually satisfactory agreements. As the result of PCRC's outreach and training efforts, more and more people are recognizing the value of collaborative approaches to working through complex situations and developing workable agreements.
