Support, Connect, Inspire.
Vinfen’s Young Adult Access Centers, located in Lawrence and Everett (named YouForward) and in Lowell (named YouthQuake) help young people embark on a positive life path into adulthood and toward the goals of personal stability, secure housing, competitive employment, and positive family and social relationships.
Access centers offer low-barrier services and support to young adults, ages 16-26. Young adults can receive support for housing, education, attend events, and access support for managing their mental health without the need for a referral. We offer ‘Drop-In’ centers and person-centered supports that are tailored to the individual’s needs and goals that they identify.
Both YouForward locations in Lawrence and Everett and Lowell’s YouthQuake are self-referral and open to anyone between the ages of 16 to 26 having difficulty regulating their emotions or experiencing mental health challenges. Young adults can simply stop by any access center to learn about how these programs can support their needs.
