Understanding the urgent need for more housing within financial reach of year-round working island families is hard. Many people aren’t aware there’s a housing crisis on Martha’s Vineyard. There’s lots of information to share and it can be daunting to dive into the details. We’re excited to share our latest creation of 3 pocket size brochures (they fold down to 6″ h x 4″ w). Our goal is to provide our community with important information in an impactful, accessible format which can be inexpensively mailed and easily distributed. We hope we’ve succeeded!
We’re very grateful to our guests who joined us on a beautiful Sunday morning in early August to enjoy a wonderful brunch at The Lambert’s Cove Inn, Restaurant and Farm. They were incredibly generous and pledged over $300,000 after listening attentively to our speakers discuss the importance of IHT’s mission to build 100 new affordable homes by 2020. Read More

We’ve recently launched our 2017 ad campaign featuring Niki, Lyn and Joey. They’re just a few of our hard working year round renters who are building their lives here on our Island. It also showcases our Workforce Housing Partners, local businesses who are helping us to realize our mission of building 100 new units of affordable housing by the end of 2020. Watch for the ads online and in print in The Vineyard Gazette, The MV Times and local magazines.
