The Island Wide Youth Collaborative (IWYC), a Massachusetts Family Resource Center provides services for at-risk families, young people and community members. The goal of a Family Resource Center is to support families to strengthen their bonds, connect to others and engage in their community.
The center was formed in 2013 as a partnership between MV Community Services, The Youth Task Force, YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard, Martha’s Vineyard schools and the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital.
People come to the IWYC for a variety of reasons. We help connect those seeking help to resources available to them, both on and off-Island. While every situation is different, our staff uses community resources and on-Island treatment options to create a web of support tailored to each scenario. All services are free and confidential.
