Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organizational goals are to reach 2000 individuals in 2016 with services that facilitate community-wide change in the way we navigate conflict. We aim to serve at least 10 people each month with mediation and coaching services and another 160 each month through speaking and training. We've observed an increase in relational conflict in nearly all facets of community, perpetuating and perpetuated by an increase in adverse childhood events. Our aim is to break the cycle of poor coping and communication skills and provide experiential proof that well-navigated engagement over differences can lead to innovation stronger communities. Through our services, we are facilitating an environment of collaboration and cooperation for tomorrow's parents and leaders.

We continue to develop online materials and training programs for individuals to gain the tools necessary for collaborative engagement. In 2016, we aim to have at least three new online training courses available for people to walk through and engage with. We're also increasing our live training offerings for mental health providers, teachers, pastors, attorneys, and military chaplains. We're investing more in online communications strategies to connect people seeking help with conflict to our services. We've increased our capacity to offer live online services for folks outside of our area or families separated by geography.

We certainly have the expertise in the subject matter among our staff to teach, train, and provide mediation and coaching services. We are limited by time and resources. We currently have one full-time staff member providing services, program development, and administration for the Conflict Resolution Center. We have part-time help in administration and service delivery. Increased funding would help us obtain much-needed assistance with items such office administration, editing and publishing of training materials, etc. This would increase the capacity of our full-time staff to provide direct services and develop training material. With the current limitations, the CRC is still on pace to meet the goals for 2016 but with an increased need for revenue from fee-for-services and donations.

This year, with limited resources, the Conflict Resolution Center has provided mediation and coaching for 47 individuals experiencing destructive conflict in their families. The CRC has also provided speaking and training services on peaceful dispute resolution to 354 individuals. We've reached nearly 400 individuals between January 1 and June 1 of 2016. Within the last 12 months, we've had 4 online training events for couples and individuals. We've provided staff training for over a dozen local organizations including the Air National Guard, and already have 3 more training events on the books including the 2016 Rural Providers Conference. We've developed 5 new videos to contribute to our next online training.

Future accomplishments include the development of a more in-depth online course for individuals in conflict, and a second course for faith-based organizations. We're working on a number of electronic resources (videos, podcasts, e-books) based on topics that have garnered the most interest online. We're also developing training material for single parents to address the rising number of adverse childhood events stemming from custody battles.
