Meet Kathryn Myrsell: 

Kathryn is the owner/operator of the Westport Aquarium. Westport Aquarium is Washington state's oldest public aquarium, built in 1955. Kathryn has collaborated with local community organizations such as the South Beach Arts Association and Grays Harbor Youth Works WAqua programs to provide youth with science and art workshops such as the underwater ROV program, where students designed, built and tested their own underwater remote operating vehicle!

About Stronger Together

Stronger Together is a restorative, multigenerational community and teen positive program for people 12+. Once a month during the school year, we gather around topics of importance to our community, such as self care, positive mental outlooks, and healthy relationships, share information and resources and create a space for learning from one another.

What an incredible year of growth we have had here at the DRC! 

Just a short two years ago, the DRC was one staff member, and a group of devoted Board members, volunteers and supporters. We are now 7 team members strong with just-as-devoted Board members, volunteers and supporters. This year, we grew our mediator pool, hired new staff, launched Nuestras Historias, and have continued to diligently support clients while keeping services accessible to all. We couldn’t have done it without your advocacy and support. 

In what has become a tradition here at the DRC, we are matching donations. If you donate by December 20th, your dollars will be doubled! 

This year, the DRC has TWO competitive Secret Santas and they are facing off on the battle for donations. 

Are you team Mr. Claus or Mrs. Claus? 

Here's how to submit your vote by donation:

 You can mail a check made out to the Dispute Resolution Center with "Mr. Claus" or "Mrs. Claus" on the memo line and mail it to the center at: 207 S. Chehalis St. #301, Aberdeen, WA  98520
