West Hawaii Mediation Center
Founded in 1988, West Hawaii Mediation Center (WHMC) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 community mediation center governed by a dedicated, volunteer Board of Directors. Our mission is 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.
For more than thirty years, WHMC has provided an array of high quality conflict resolution services to community members and organizations throughout West Hawaii. In addition to mediation and community training, WHMC provides in-school youth conflict resolution programs through a partnership with the Department of Education. Our services are made available and affordable through the consistent and dedicated efforts of trained volunteers and staff, combined with extensive fundraising and public/private funding partnerships. WHMC is a member of a statewide organization, Mediation Centers of Hawaii (MCH), which consists of five independent, non-profit mediation centers.
