We believe when people can be their full selves – safe and engaged – our community thrives.

From newborns to seniors – our programs and services are here for all ages. We empower children, families, and individuals to lead their healthiest lives. While Martha’s Vineyard is a top vacation destination attracting visitors from all around the world – our year-round population of 17,000 is one of the poorest in the Commonwealth.

With a seasonal economy and a high cost of living, the Vineyard can be a difficult place to live without the emotional, financial, or social resources available to help cope with personal, health and family problems.

When life happens, MVCS is here. We open our doors to all who call the Island home, regardless of financial, cultural or physical barriers. With over 100 volunteers, a staff of 110, and various community partnerships, MVCS acts as a safety net for our community.
