What we do:
Island Elderly Housing provides housing to low-income elders and the disabled. Since 1977, with the help of federal and state funding, Island Elderly Housing, Inc., a 501(C) (3), has been quietly offering affordable rental housing on Martha’s Vineyard. Today, over 165 residents call IEH their home. IEH continues to be committed to providing quality, affordable housing, and quality of life services for independent living for the elderly and disabled. Our apartments are an important resource to the Island community - over 95% of our residents have family or relatives on the Island.
Where and When:
Island Elderly Housing Administrative offices are located at 60B Village Road, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568 Monday through Friday 8-4.
While we receive rental assistance from the federal government, it’s for housing only, and our related services have expanded. Our residents have “aged in place” and Quality of Life services have become more urgent, this is where private funding has been required. The supportive services we offer, such as transportation, community meals, social events, depend on the generosity of our supporters both on and off-island.
