What We Do

          

 VIP was founded in 1983 as the Martha's Vineyard Special Parents Association, a group of families working to improve opportunities for their children with disabilities.

     

In 2007 we changed the name to Vineyard Independence Partnership, to represent a full picture of inclusion for people of all ages living, working and playing on Martha's Vineyard
