Our Services and Programs

CRS provides facilitation, mediation, training, and consultation services that improve communities’ abilities to problem solve and build capacity to prevent and respond to conflict, tension, and hate crimes based on race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and disability. CRS provides programs designed to strengthen community and law enforcement partnerships, as well as school-based programs that improve problem solving between students. The goals of all CRS programs are to help parties in conflict learn about different perspectives, share information about resources and best practices, and support communities as they identify and implement solutions. While some CRS programs may be designed for a particular audience, most programs can be tailored to a specific audience or setting.

GodSquad | Keeping the Peace in Sanford, FL

During the 2013 trial of George Zimmerman regarding the shooting of Trayvon Martin, CRS convened local clergy and law enforcement in a working group designed to decrease misinformation and maintain peace in the community. During the trial, these leaders met regularly and constantly monitored developments in the trial – including sitting in the courtroom each day – in order to quash false rumors and promote nonviolence.
