Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center was one of 14 nonprofit organizations in the state to participate in The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation’s annual “Christmas in September” luncheon on Sept. 27 in Honolulu.

“There are always disagreements, problems and conflict in everybody’s lives, but do you have the tools to solve them?” said foundation staff member Kathie Yamashiro. “This is where Kuʻikahi Mediation Center helps out,”

Yamashiro presented Kuʻikahi Executive Director Julie Mitchell with a check for $10,000, and a client representative shared how mediation changed his life for the better.

“We were extremely grateful to be selected by Kathie for this honor,” said Mitchell. “The Weinberg Foundation’s generous contribution supports much-needed conflict resolution programs for low-income individuals.”

Since 1990, The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation has provided over $312 million in grants to over 700 Hawaiʻi nonprofit organizations helping the poor and needy.

Ku’ikahi’s mediation services are provided on a sliding scale; no one turned away for lack of funds. Over 50% of the center’s mediation clients have annual household incomes of under $20,000.
