To Support Peace With a Check:
Thanks for giving peace a chance.
We are not funded by the courts. Our volunteers donated more than 4,450 hours to help end the wars and begin the peace for 498 families, in 2022.
There's nothing else like mediation. And this is no ordinary mediation program. With the help of our expert volunteer mediators, an unparalleled 90% of our co-parents become the heroes of their own stories.
Thanks the generous support of private donors, SC Family Mediation was able to provide our volunteer team members with $28,050 in honorariums, in 2022.
Since 2014, SCFM volunteers have served about more than 3,000 families in the Los Angeles County adoption and children's/dependency court systems.
Children's (or dependency) courts are "where they take your kids away". Family Reunification (FR) can take two years and include drug or alcohol testing, anger management & parenting classes, and individual & joint counseling. Sometimes, parents have really gotten their lives together for the first time. As they are exiting the juvenile court system is no time to drop the ball.
After about two years in the system, free mediation provides successful co-parents (parents who don't cohabitate) with their opportunity to create their own custom detailed written Parenting Plan. Parenting plans include all the details they will need to co-parent safely & successfully for our next generation, the kids. Parenting Plans include: a detailed schedule, transportation, exchanges, communication, travel, and holiday plans.
Without a detailed Parenting Plan created through mediation, families exit the system through a revolving door, and too often children return as young parents. This leads to crime on the streets and broken futures.
Help us empower families with the techniques, tools, and structure they need to co-parent more peacefully and successfully.
