Let life throw our way what it will. We are ready. We innovate out of practicality and inspire by example, pouring our best practices, our personal expertise and our powerful network into one innovative model of care. We are committed to ensuring that everyone on Martha's Vineyard has access to the care and services they need.

Community Collaboration is Key to our Success

While I’m still fairly new on the Island, I’ve worked in policing for 30 years. I’ve never seen a relationship between a community services agency and local police like the partnership Martha’s Vineyard Community Services has with all of the Island’s police departments. In an instance of domestic violence or sexual assault, we know exactly who to call at Community Services and we work closely with them through the entire process. -Bruce McNamee, Chief of Police, Edgartown
