The primary goal of the JAS Mediation for Results (MFR) program is to prevent homelessness by resolving housing related disputes and providing financial assistance programs . A comprehensive range of services is available to help tenants, landlords, and organizations resolve conflict peacefully and affordably.
Just-A-Start Mediation For Results offers mediation in the following areas: landlord-tenant, condominiums and real estate matters. MFR provides Trial Day mediation in Malden, Chelsea and Woburn District Courts. MFR also offers one-to-one coaching services to help parties to prevent dispute escalation and save money. Services are free although for some cases a fee may be charged.
Mediation provides parties involved in a dispute an opportunity to work together toward a resolution that can make sense for all parties. With the help of a neutral mediator, the parties can identify issues, develop and test possible resolutions, and reach workable agreements.
