The Crown Heights Community Mediation Center is a unique neighborhood institution that works to improve community problem-solving, collaboration, and inter-group relations in Brooklyn, New York.

The Mediation Center staff and volunteers work to strengthen the neighborhoods of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant. We work to be an example to the city and the rest of the world of how neighborhoods torn apart by violence can become safe, healthy, and vibrant places for all people through the collaborative efforts of neighbors, government, and community organizations.

The Center’s staff work out of a storefront office on Kingston Avenue, the ground floor of a brownstone in Bed-Stuy, and throughout the neighborhoods of Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy. At our Crown Heights office, we offer resources, referrals, and youth programs, and in the community we run youth development and anti-violence programs. The Crown Heights Community Mediation Center is a project of the Center for Court Innovation.
