The DRC of Yakima and Kittitas Counties provides mediation services, training and other ways for people to peacefully solve disputes themselves.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process through which people involved in a conflict can sit down with a neutral third party to resolve their differences.

Our mediators are professionally trained and certified. They listen to both parties and work with them to create an agenda of topics to be negotiated.

With the guidance of the mediators, the parties negotiate and discuss the issues and find an agreement that is acceptable to those involved in the dispute.
