is to encourage and assist all residents of Dukes County—fulltime, part-time, and seasonal—to resolve conflicts through mediation and other constructive dispute resolution tools. We do this by providing education, outreach, and the following mediation services:
- Business Disputes
- Family, Child-custody, Divorce
- Elder Affairs
- Housing & Neighborhood Disputes
- Civil Court Cases & Small Claims
- Veterans Mediation
- Workplace Conflict
We're committed to making our services affordable for all Vineyarders. MVMP has a sliding fee scale, based on income. We also have a Family Fund sponsored by individual and corporate donors to offset costs of mediation to families in need of our services. No one will be turned away for financial reasons.
OUR SECONDARY MISSION is to relieve congestion in the court system.
64% of the year-to-date community cases have participated in mediation and successfully resolved their conflict – developing their own agreement with the help of a Massachusetts qualified mediator.
