About the Association
Our Shoreline Community Association (OSCA) is a non-profit, membership association, designed to enrich the lives of seniors in Noank, Groton Long Point, Mumford Cove and Mystic (both Groton & Stonington). With guidance from a coordinator, neighbors help other neighbors stay in their own homes as long as possible.
- Promote member attendance at social, cultural and community events
- Provide, as needed, transportation to medical appointments, grocery stores and pharmacies
- Organize member activities, such as book clubs, exercise programs and crafts
- Make regular contact through friendly phone calls and emails
- Provide a directory of service providers, some at discounted rates, for home repair, lawn maintenance, pet sitting and home healthcare
- Maintain a recommended list of accountants, attorneys and investment advisors focusing on the concerns of seniors
- Expose you to new friends and new ideas
OSCA was inspired by the success of the Beacon Hill Village that began as a group of central Boston neighbors seeking to support each other stay in their home.
Initially sponsored by the Noank Baptist Church, Charles B. Allyn Foundation, Anderson-Paffard Foundation, St. Patrick Church - Community Life, Mystic, Mystic Rotary, Mystic Lions and other local clubs, foundations and individuals, the association plans to become an independent non-profit corporation with a board elected by its members.
