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.
ACCESS CENTER LOCATIONS
YouForward's locations in Lawrence and Everett and YouthQuake in Lowell are open but providing services by appointment and scheduled groups only.
