Authored By: Kauai Economic Opportunity
Kauai Economic Opportunity, Incorporated (KEO) is a private non-profit agency which was incorporated on March 16, 1965. KEO is a multi-purpose organization with funding from a variety of sources which it uses to plan, conduct, and evaluate a broad range of human development programs. The agency is the only human services organization on Kauai, whose purpose is to serve the low-income.
KEO Mediation Program can address a number of issues. Mediators from the agency facilitate dispute resolution in a confidential, informal and non-threatening manner, with the aim of avoiding court proceedings or preventing evictions. The fee charged to the client is nominal, especially when compared with court costs and lawyer fees. The mediator acts as an impartial third party, keeping the two sides on track and will hopefully find solutions for a mutually satisfactory resolution.
