The Athens Area Mediation Service is a nonprofit organization that provides the residents of Athens County, Ohio, with cooperative approaches to dispute resolution. AAMS is dedicated to promoting and supporting reconciliation, integrity, openness and inclusion. In addition, by training community members to serve as mediators and sharing these skills with others, AAMS empowers individuals and community groups to respond to conflict effectively.
Listen. Mediate. Educate.
We help people in conflict, many, many kinds of conflict in a wide variety of situations. Some are long term, deeply seated conflicts; some do not seem as serious. Some involve the court and legal system; some do not. Some with people who are ready and willing to work things out; some with people who are angry and discouraged. We have helped people have important conversations and resolve disputes including those between:
- Spouses and partners
- Business owners and consumers
- Parents and teens
- Landlords and tenants
- Roommates and house mates
- Boards, staffs, and groups trying to work together
- Residents and officials
