State Rep. Erin Zwiener presented a State of Texas Proclamation to the Central Texas Dispute Resolution Center. The CTDRC was established in 2009 to provide affordable mediation services and training to the underserved and unserved population in Central Texas.
The nonprofit reaches more than half a million people across Hays, Comal, Guadalupe and Caldwell counties and mediates cases in the areas of community, civil, family, divorce and child custody disputes, with approximately 150 cases settled out of court annually.
The CTDRC also offers a number of programs that foster peaceful conflict resolution; its mediators, all practicing Texas attorneys or credentialed professionals, lead specialized instruction in several types of mediation, as well as host peer mediation classes for local students and minimum legal education for area attorneys and mediators.
Over the past decade, the staff and volunteers of the Central Texas Dispute Resolution Center have played a vital role in the communities they serve while advancing the organization’s important mission.
