The Institute for Nonprofit Practice announced Leslie Clapp, Executive Director of Martha’s Vineyard Center for Living, a recipient of the 2021 Changemaker Award! This award is given to individuals who have demonstrated remarkable service, courage, and generosity to support their neighbors and communities while confronting unprecedented adversity over the past two years.

Martha’s Vineyard Center for Living (MVC4L) is committed to providing resources and services to Island seniors, families, and caregivers. Keeping MVC4L open and functioning through the pandemic was Leslie’s superpower. During a time when Councils on Aging and Supportive Day programs across Massachusetts were closed, MVC4L stayed engaged in the work and mission of providing service to its aging community.

From starting on Zoom at first, five days a week with friendly calls, to socially distanced visits and then community outreach, not only did Leslie keep staff employed and engaged in the work of the center, but also provided a place to “gather.”

Leslie’s fierce commitment to service for Island elders has brought the center back to full in-person programming in 2022. Her dedication to Island seniors continues as the aging community experiences rapid growth. Leslie’s award reflects her agility, grit, and dedication to the changing needs of Island seniors.
