Martha’s Vineyard Community Services is dedicated to enhancing the lives of Islanders from every corner of the Vineyard community and at every point in their journey. Since 1961, our interconnected programs have had two essential qualities: Serving Islanders of every economic circumstance and offering services that would otherwise be unaffordable or completely unavailable to many of our neighbors who need them.
We are pleased to bring you our 2015 annual report detailing our work from July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. In the pages of this annual report, we highlight the vital work that Martha’s Vineyard Community Services does to foster wellness and stability for year-round and summer residents of the Vineyard.
