Island Wide Youth Collaborative (IWYC)
A Massachusetts Family Resource Center
The Island Wide Youth Collaborative (IWYC) is a Massachusetts Family Resource Center that provides services for at-risk families, young people and community members.
The mission of the IWYC is to optimize established community resources by creating an integrated system of behavioral health care comprised of local providers while maintaining on-island treatment options for our at-risk youth, young adults and their families. Translation is available for all programming.
Formed in 2013, partners of the IWYC include the Youth Task Force, YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard, Martha’s Vineyard schools, the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital and Martha’s Vineyard Community Services, who also serves as the program’s home.
The IWYC optimizes established community resources and bring to the Island new professional, recreational and other supports not currently available for children and their families. The IWYC receives its funding from the Department of Children and Families, the Tower Foundation, the MV Youth and municipal and private donations.
