Our Partners Clara Martin Center Clara Martin Center is a community-based, non-profit organization that provides acute and long-term behavioral health care services. They strive to be consumer-sensitive, cost-effective, and outcome-based. The Center was founded as one of ten mental health agencies organized by Vermont Statue in 1966. Their roots stem from local clergy and social service professionals who saw a need for supportive counseling services in the community as an alternative to placement of persons at the Vermont State Hospital.
