Center for Living receives grant


Martha’s Vineyard Center for Living was awarded a grant from the I’m Still Here Foundation for its Community Social Connections program. According to a press release, this program began in 2020 with events designed to allow clients and community members to gather safely outside and be social.

“COVID sidelined everything,” said Leslie Clapp, executive director of the Martha’s Vineyard

Center for Living. “However, we dearly miss our regular hospitality events, our pre-COVID ability to welcome the community to socialize with us. This Social Community Connections program solves this dilemma for us, and we are thrilled that I’m Still Here Foundation, an innovative, person-centered grantor, mirrors our vision for elders living with dementia and other disabilities.”

Community Social Connections will be free of charge, although may, in some cases, be limited by COVID capacity.
