YOUNG ADULT ACCESS CENTERS
Vinfen’s Enhanced Young Adult Program (EYAP) provides access centers in Lawrence, Lowell, and Everett to 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.
Most of your youth services are available to young adults between the ages of 14-25 who are eligible to receive support from the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. However, our youth and young adult access centers, YouForward and YouthQuake, are self-referral and open to anyone between the ages of 14-25 having difficulty regulating their emotions or facing substance use or mental health challenges.
