About Us

Founded in 1988, West Hawaii Mediation Center(WHMC) strives to provide an array of high quality conflict resolution services to community members and organizations throughout West Hawaii. These services are available and affordable through the consistent and dedicated efforts of trained volunteers and staff combined with ongoing public/private funding partnerships.

WHMC is a member of a statewide organization, Mediation Centers of Hawaii (MCH). This organization is made up of five independent, non-profit mediation centers which are each partially funded by the State Judiciary via the Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution.

What We Do

WHMC provides a neutral setting for parties in conflict to have a confidential dialogue. With the assistance of two trained neutral mediators, parties will be guided through a process of information gathering, identifying issues and areas of agreement and work toward finding a mutually satisfactory agreement.

Our Mission

To provide dispute resolution services and education services to empower individuals and build communities that view conflict resolution as a catalyst for positive change. Through our mediation and education programs, WHMC provides tools and opportunities for people to resolve their differences in a safe and neutral environment.
