Announcing Our Clinical Residency Program

Island Counseling Center Clinical Residency Program

In our 61st year of providing a robust range of clinical and social services to Islanders of all ages, Martha’s Vineyard Community Services announces its first Clinical Residency Program.

The Clinical Residency Program offers full-time employment at Community Services and includes affordable associated single-room housing to five master’s-level clinicians who wish to pursue clinical licensure. Eligible clinicians are those who have graduated from a counseling or social work program as of January 2019 and who have a passion for learning, community engagement, and exceptional clinical service.

Programs and Services

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
