The Mediation Center of the Pacific is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency whose mission is to provide high-quality mediation and dispute resolution services that are affordable and accessible.
The Mediation Center of the Pacific (MCP) is a 501(c)(3) not for profit corporation that was founded in 1979 to provide Hawaii’s people with peaceful approaches to working through conflict. MCP was one of the earliest established community mediation centers in the nation, and it has continued to grow and evolve since that time.
Over the years, MCP has developed programs and processes that meet the unique needs of Hawaii’s culturally diverse populations. Parties in conflict are assisted in resolving their immediate dispute, as well as in improving communication and strengthening their relationships for the future. In addition to providing direct mediation and dispute resolution services, MCP is a critical resource for creating innovative dispute resolution training and programs for Hawaii’s courts, schools, businesses, and communities.
Through these training and programs, more people have the opportunity to work through their conflicts and avoid a legal or administrative proceeding. The many opportunities provided by MCP to prevent and resolve disputes quickly and affordably through culturally sensitive processes are a vital resource for Hawaii’s residents.
