Dispute Resolution Center of Kitsap County
The Kitsap DRC is a 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) non-profit. We offer mediation, facilitation, training and Behavioral Health Ombuds services. We work with individuals, organizations, and businesses in our community to mediate disputes, improve mutual understanding, promote restorative practices, maintain relationships, and to provide tools for effective, productive communications.
Here is what some of our mediation and facilitation clients say was the BEST part of their experience with the DRC: • I was very hesitant at first, but I feel we were able to have an open, honest, conversation. • Mediation provided a new way to look at each other and listen with less bias and judgements. • Being heard and understood for once. • The mediators were great. No agreement was reached however, I did gain a deeper understanding of the situation from our mediation. • We learned a new way to communicate more efficiently so that both of our concerns & needs can be met to benefit the children better. • Being able to communicate without interruptions and able to have someone else help with the understanding each other. • Opening a door to communication that had broken down. • I feel that the overall structure & "road map" of the process helped organize & prioritize our issues. The option for caucus provides a level of comfort that I didn't expect.
The DRC is a non-profit that provides mediation, facilitation and training services to the Kitsap and North Mason communities free or on a sliding scale. Funds we receive will support needed programs that benefit our community and help make Kitsap the area we all can enjoy living in.
