Community  
A free and confidential alternative to litigation. It allows more control and flexibility by resolving cases through collective problem-solving and self-determination.  Our on-going relationship with the courts we serve allows NVMS to extend the benefits of our mediation services to civil court disputants.



Court Mediation 


Restorative Justice 


The Fairfax County Alternative Accountability Program (AAP) is a collaborative and community-oriented response to juvenile crime and wrongdoing in our community and schools.This year saw a remarkable increase in youth referrals to the program. The goals of the program are to prevent youth from getting criminal records, reduce recidivism, and address disproprtionate minority contact with the criminal justice system.
