Eviction Avoidance Program

Worried about your Housing Provider or Tenant?

Don’t wait. Mediate!

Mediation can be a great tool for resolving conflicts between landlords and tenants or tenants and tenants. It’s easier to solve problems early on, before they escalate into bigger issues to utilizing mediation, rather than going through a formal court process to pursue an eviction or a claim to recovery of money/personal property. This program is a partnership with Oregon Housing and Community Services.

Benefits of Housing Related Mediation

  • Confidential – Sessions take place in a private and safe setting.
  • Empowering – Mediation is voluntary. Participants are in control of the outcome (rather than relying on a judge).
  • Flexible – Sessions may be scheduled for day or evening with both remote and in-person options.
  • Save Time – Mediations are scheduled as soon as possible. Solutions can be reached without having to wait for notices or court dates.
  • Cost Effective – Eviction Avoidance Mediation is free, and mediation may prevent lengthy and costly court proceedings.
