Leaders at Martha’s Vineyard Community Services this week quietly unveiled future plans to build a new facility on property adjacent to the current campus across the road from the regional high school in Oak Bluffs.
By mutual agreement, Martha’s Vineyard Community Services has taken ownership of the renovated Luce house for permanent use by the Family Center. The dormant Seminars, formed in 1976 to provide lectures and college-level courses on the Vineyard, will no longer exist.
Islanders experiencing mental health and substance abuse crises are expected to benefit from a Martha’s Vineyard Community Services crisis stabilization unit that will be run on hospital grounds. The so-called red house will be renovated to house the program.
