Our Year End Goal is to Raise $300,000 for the Hanover House

Partnering with the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, IHT is repurposing the historic Hanover House Inn in the center of Tisbury into year-round affordable rental housing for 15 income qualified hospital employees. Construction began in October and we’re shooting for a late Winter 2019 occupancy.  Read more about how your generous contribution will help provide safe, stable homes for the health care workers on whom we all rely.

Celebrating Family, Friends & Community

Taylor Ives grew up in Aquinnah. As a boy roaming his neighborhood beaches he probably didn’t give much thought to what it would mean to raise a family of his own here on the Vineyard. But, when he and his wife Sarah gave birth to their first son, Louie, they realized how important it was to them to try to create an island home for him too. Last Thursday that dream became a reality for the Ive’s and the Benoit’s, two island families who celebrated the completion of their new homes at Smalley’s Knoll in Aquinnah.

Let’s Keep Talking

We’re very grateful to the MV Times for their recent editorial supporting the need for more affordable housing on Martha’s Vineyard. The piece discusses ideas being considered for up to 75 new apartments in a mixed used building on Beach Road in Vineyard Haven.  Stressing the importance of working together to make affordable housing a reality for our friends and neighbors, it encourages the whole island community to get involved. We’d also like to say thank you to the Times for the kind words about our just completed apartments at Scott’s Grove in West Tisbury. Read the editorial here….

Look Who Made the Cover!

Our very own Derrill Bazzy made the cover of the most recent issue of The Vine published by The Vineyard Gazette. As our nine new apartments at Scott’s Grove in West Tisbury were finishing up he met reporter Louisa Hufstader on site to talk design, construction and the value of building for today and tomorrow.

A Shared Celebration in West Tisbury

The nine apartments at Scott’s Grove in West Tisbury were filled with the sounds of laughter and conversation as folks gathered yesterday to celebrate the ribbon cutting for a beautiful new neighborhood. A year ago, we held the ground breaking in this very same spot when it was a simple grove of trees. We’re very grateful to the dedicated team of town and state officials, our generous donors and the talented designers and builders who worked together to transform this lovely parcel into home for many year-round island residents.
