In 2007, the Lucas County Juvenile Court Mediation Department intentionally developed its mission statement and program principles. Our foundational belief is that family members and parties involved with the Juvenile Court hold the key to finding an efficient and lasting resolution to their court case through a mediation process that offers respect, understanding and support in a welcoming and safe mediation setting.Mission
