About Us

FairField Center builds peace in our communities through our work in Conflict Resolution, Communication Training, Business Services, Restorative Justice and Civic Engagement initiatives.

Anyone is eligible for services, training or participation. The Center works with a sliding-scale and pro bono fee structure. FairField’s primary service area is the central Shenandoah Valley in western Virginia. Services may be provided outside of this area in certain situations.

Incorporated in 1982 as the first mediation center in Virginia, FairField Center is a registered 501(c)3 organization in Virginia (under the original name Community Mediation Center.)

The Center is a Partner Agency with both the United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County and the United Way of Greater Augusta, and a member of both Harrisonburg-Rockingham Chamber of Commerce and Greater Augusta Chamber of Commerce.

FairField Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability or age in its employment or activities.
