Mountain Mediation Center

Since 1998, MMC has provided free and low cost mediation services to local residents to resolve conflict outside of a courtroom

Our Mission
Mountain Mediation Center Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide the residents of Park City, Summit and Wasatch Counties in Utah with the support needed to prevent and resolve disputes and to transform conflict into progress.

Our Vision
MMC’s aim is to foster a compassionate community in which people with differing viewpoints listen to each other with understanding and mutual respect, engage in constructive dialogue, and effectively manage conflicts and resolve disputes. 

We believe that active participation is key to successful dispute mediation, and high ethical standards of practice are the foundation of all of MMC’s work. We strive to practice and promote the highest quality of mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

Active participation is key to promoting vibrant, compassionate communities. By supporting people in addressing challenges in their own lives, we help increase their capacity to more effectively engage in broader civic life.
