Early Education and Care Center – Virtual Groundbreaking
It is with great pride that we share the groundbreaking of our new Early Education and Care Center. We cannot thank our donors enough for their support and generosity toward the construction of this new center. We look forward to it’s open in the fall of 2021.
About MV Community Services Capital Campaign:
Our campus is old. The buildings are dilapidated, leaky and crowded.
Our Early Education and Care Center has one bathroom for 34 children. The classrooms are connected, leading to frequent interruptions. And there are 17 different entrances.
Our Disability Services space lacks elevators, automatic doors and wheelchair accessibility. The uneven outdoor pathways are challenging.
Our Outpatient Mental Health Clinic and Recovery Services space is packed to capacity. Counselors share offices, leading to lack of privacy, insufficient meeting spaces and long waitlists.
With your generosity we’re ready to turn this situation around.
The designs are approved, the specs confirmed, we are ready.
Our $24 million capital campaign is well underway.
Key projects provide room to innovate and grow. Spaces worthy of the hard and sensitive work that is being done.
The expanded, more versatile Early Education and Care Center will allow us to serve 30% more children in a safe and secure space. We’ll create a greater sense of community with common space for large groups.
The new Disability Services space will be ADA compliant, accessible to all and will feature the Island’s only Sensory Lending Library.
Our new Outpatient Mental Health Clinic and Recovery Services space will shorten waitlists, with treatment spaces for recovery, meeting spaces for large groups and spaces designed to inspire respect and confidentiality.
It’s go time!

When each of us is fully all that we can be, our community thrives.
No, construction is being done in phases and all programming will remain as scheduled.
The new Center is anticipated to be built by fall 2021.
We are currently working toward our next milestone of $12 million to cover the building of the main campus, multi-purpose building that will house our outpatient mental health clinic, emergency services, disability services, recovery coaching, veterans services and administrative offices.
