About Us

The Cecil County Community Mediation Center (CCCMC) is a nonprofit organization providing free, effective, and confidential mediation services in Cecil County, MD.  Services are provided by a team of impartial, volunteer mediators who bring people together to discuss issues, explore options, and when possible, develop solutions that satisfy everyone.  Because mediation empowers voluntary participants to resolve their own conflicts in their own way, mediation agreements tend to last, even longer than court orders.

Mediation can be used to resolve almost any conflict. Typically mediated disputes are between: family members; schools/families; friends; neighbors/neighborhoods; roommates; co-workers; landlords/tenants; consumers/merchants, on topics of: custody/child access; marriage issues; parent/teen issues; elder care; living arrangements; school attendance/behavior; substance abuse/recovery; prison reentry; property maintenance; business complaints/contracts.

A study conducted by the Maryland Judiciary concluded, “Cases that reached agreement in mediation are half as likely (21%) to return to court for enforcement actions compared to cases that reached a verdict (46%).”  Participants who used mediation were more likely than those who went through the court process to report: “an improved relationship and attitude toward the other participant measured from before the intervention (the mediation session or trial) to 3-6 months later; the outcome was working; satisfaction with the outcome; satisfaction with the judicial system 3-6 months after the intervention.”  Because the courts recognize mediation works to not only resolve conflicts, but also repair relationships when participants voluntarily collaborate to resolve disputes, they have partnered with CCCMC to refer (some) appropriate cases for mediation.

Community members may choose to refer themselves for mediation at any time during a dispute; before retaining an attorney, before filing charges, after charges have been filed, or after court proceedings to try to resolve conflicts through the collaborative mediation process. While mediation results in an agreement about 85% of the time, it also provides an opportunity for participants to mend damaged relationships, if that is their desired outcome.  If mediation is not possible (some conflicts are inappropriate for mediation, mediation is a voluntary process) or successful (not all mediation sessions result in an agreement), participants may still choose other options for conflict resolution.

When appropriate, mediation sessions are held face-to-face at times and places convenient for the participants.  Due to COVID-19 guidelines, CCCMC has added virtual mediation and an option for community members to participate in online mediation from the CCCMC office if they require technology and/or a confidential space to participate in a session.

Contact CCCMC for a conversation to determine if mediation is right for you.  Conversations are confidential and mediation sessions are free, regardless of your ability to pay.

Freedom Hills Therapeutic Riding

Freedom Hills Therapeutic Riding Program offers Equine Facilitated Therapy to people who happen to have mental, physical and or emotional difficulties including Military Veterans, active Military and “Kids at Risk”. Our youngest student was 18 months old when he started. Our oldest student was 99 years old when he graduated.

We were the second program in the United States to offer Equine Facilitated Therapy Military Veterans. The Military Veterans come from the Perry Point Veterans Hospital, the Elkton Vet center and the Aberdeen Vet Center as well as individually.

The “Kids at Risk” come from Upper Bay Counseling, WINN Family Services and Key Point as well as individually. All of these organizations serve people in both Cecil and Harford County. Our Mentally Challenged population come from Bay Side Community as well as individually. We serve approximately 300 students per year.

In 2017 we also started an Animal Education Program where we go into the school system with a miniature horse, a miniature donkey, a bunny, some chickens and two ducks. We also take this program to fairs to teach children about animals.

We also offer Farm Based Education where we encourage schools to bring children out to the farm to increase the children’s interest in learning. I helped write the curriculum for “Maryland’s Equine Farm Based Education”.

We work with individuals of all types of disabilities. The only time an individual with a disability is turned away is if their doctor will not allow them to ride. However in those cases we offer Natural Horsemanship which is ground work and the person does not need to ride a horse.

We invite you and your colleagues to come out and visit Freedom Hills Therapeutic Riding Program so you can experience first hand the joy and healing horses offer people.

Our Mission

The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services protects the public, its employees, and detainees and offenders under its supervision.

What We Do

The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services is one of the largest departments in Maryland with nearly 12,000 employees and a budget of more than $1 billion. In order to fulfill our mission of promoting safety, we have increased security at our institutions while leading the way in innovative restorative justice projects that will help offenders reintegrate into society upon release.

Public Safety operates 27 institutions, including Baltimore City’s pre-trial facility, as well as 45 Parole and Probation offices throughout the state.

Our primary objective is to ensure safety so that all Marylanders can enjoy living and working in the state. We are achieving this by increasing security in our institutions and supplying offenders and former-offenders the tools necessary to stay out of the criminal justice system.

We are also working with partner agencies, sharing important intelligence information in order to reduce crime and violence.

Around the state, we work in the communities to which many of our offenders will one day return. Offenders are out in the community every day, performing public works and sustainability projects that save taxpayer dollars and help preserve Maryland’s natural resources.
