The Martha’s Vineyard Family Center is here for Island families.

The Family Center connects families with resources within our community and provides education and support to parents/caregivers of children ages 0-8, including the prenatal and pre-adoptive period.  The Center is an Island hub where parents can get support in navigating the joys and challenges of parenthood. The MV Family Center is welcoming, accessible and respectful of all families who come through their doors.

Services include:

Parent and Child Activities

From exploring local trails to virtual story time – each month brings new adventures.

Community and Family Events

Navigating parenthood can be a challenge. The Family Center is here to support you.
