WHO WE ARE
Since 1983, Ku'ikahi Mediation Center has helped to bring about peaceful resolutions to conflicts in our community—first as a program of the YMCA of Hawai’i Island, and from 2006 as an independent non-profit organization.
Ku'ikahi Mediation Center provides a variety of dispute prevention and resolution services to our East Hawai'i community. We help individuals, families, organizations, businesses, schools, and others to find creative solutions to challenging situations.
Over 95% of our clients would recommend our services to others!
ABOUT OUR NAME & LOGO
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Ku‘ikahi means a treaty, covenant, agreement, feeling of unity, peace, reconciliation.(excerpted from the Hawaiian Dictionary by Mary Kawena Pukui & Samuel H. Elbert)
What does our logo symbolize?
Designed by Eric Smith, our logo represents the hands of four people, two mediators and two mediation participants, coming together to find resolution.
OUR VISION & MISSION
We empower people to come together—to talk and to listen, to explore options, and to find their own best solutions.
To achieve this mission, we offer mediation, facilitation, and training to strengthen the ability of diverse individuals and groups to resolve interpersonal conflicts and community issues.
A peaceful community where people routinely seek common ground.
