               Mountain Mediation Services promotes peace and collaborative resolution of conflicts. They also provide affordable, quality services in the areas of family, neighborhood, business, and other community conflicts as an alternative to judicial conflict resolution.  

                In addition, Mountain Mediation Services provides community education in conflict prevention and positive resolution skills. They serve seven western counties of North Carolina, including Swain, Jackson, Cherokee, Clay, Haywood, Macon, Graham and the Qualla Boundary.  

                Harrah’s Cherokee Casino & Hotel has a sponsorship policy in place that supports a Code of Commitment and upholds a philanthropic view of supporting the communities where employees work and live. Target giving areas include organizations related to health, senior citizens, education, diversity, cultural resource development and civic programs.

                “We are proud to support the efforts of Mountain Mediation Services and other charities that make a difference to others and makes our communities stronger,” said Jo Blaylock, Vice President of Human Resources and External Relations.
