Project Place is a non-profit that serves homeless and low-income individuals in stabilization, employment, and housing, through skills-based education and case management. Project Place would like to improve its dispute resolution system to be more client-centered, in order to improve its programs and services while building skills in conflict resolution to be a source of empowerment for its clients in both their personal and professional lives.
