Mason, Manistee & Oceana Counties, Mediation & Restorative
Services provides an alternative for
the resolution of disputes and reconciliation of disputing parties;
enhance public safety and accountability by supporting victims, build
competencies of offenders and promote reconciliation between victims,
offenders, families and the community.

treated strictly as adversaries, but as members of a community that, once
fractured, need to be brought together.
The Center, through a
mediation, a constructive discussion about a dispute. When the
parties resolve the problem to their own satisfaction, everyone wins
individuals to learn the impact of their actions and take direct
a mutually acceptable plan to restore the situation back to its
original state, as much as possible
the healing process of victims by providing a safe, controlled
setting to meet with the offender
positive skill development of all participants
stated by the Honorable Neil G. Mullally, “When you see the power
of restorative justice for the victim, the community, and the offender,
you are compelled to adopt that approach to justice”.
