Mountainside Community Mediation Center (MCMC) to Serve Western Maryland from New Location in Cumberland

Mountainside Community Mediation Center (MCMC) will hold a grand opening celebration from 2-4 p.m. on Sun., May 4 at its new office location at 56 S. Centre Street in Cumberland. The event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served. The celebration will be an open house offering an opportunity to interact with MCMC leadership and mediators to learn about training and volunteer opportunities.

Supported by the Maryland’s Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO), MCMC offers free, neutral mediation services that can assist with interpersonal and organizational conflicts and relationship management. The mission of the organization is to educate, train, and mediate as well as support alternative dispute resolution in the region. MCMC currently co-sponsors the Sustaining Campus and Community Dialogue Series in Frostburg, MD. MCMC was awarded with the program of the year along with Community Mediation Maryland and the 17 other community mediation centers in Maryland during the 2013 Maryland Judiciary award ceremony. The new office location returns the Center to Cumberland, where it had its home base before moving to Frostburg. The office is located in the DeWitt Camera building, which was built in 1920 and was the home to a bank before it became a retail camera shop, which it remained as from1955-2012. Currently Away Media and Hush Skin care occupy the second floor offices.
