Hillsboro Mediation is a free, confidential, and voluntary process through which people in disputes resolve their own conflicts with the assistance of an impartial third party, the mediators.

Tug of War thumbDid you know that as a Western Washington County resident, you are eligible for free services from the Hillsboro Mediation Program? The Mediation Program was established as a Hillsboro Police community program in 1994 to assist citizens with conflicts in their neighborhoods, businesses, and in their homes. 

Some of the types of cases we handle include:

1) Neighbor to neighbor.  Does your neighbor’s dog bark too much or kids play their music too loud?  We can help to work out these and many other types of conflicts!
2) Do you have an issue with a local business?  You can’t seem to get past the arguing and loud conversations to figure out a solution?  We can help!
3) Are there conflicts in your family centered on a teenager?  An elderly parent?  We can help to facilitate conversations that can help you find solutions!

Hillsboro Mediation is a free, confidential, and voluntary process through which people in disputes resolve their own conflicts with the assistance of an impartial third party, the mediators.  Our sessions generally last 1-2 hours on a day and time agreed upon by all those involved.  Our aim is to bring people together to listen to one another, communicate their needs, and increase understanding.

We also offer Conflict Coaching sessions.  A trained Conflict Coach will meet with you, free of charge, to help you determine your options and the course of action you might take to resolve the conflict in your life.  Conflict Coaching sessions are confidential.  A Conflict Coaching session can be a good preparation session for a mediation.

These are a few of the types of conflict we can help with.  Contact us for assistance or for more information at 503-615-6651 or Mediation@Hillsboro-Oregon.gov  SE HABLA ESPANOL.
