Mission

The Shoreline Village CT is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  The activities to be conducted and the purposes to be promoted or carried out by the Corporation shall include providing information and services, sponsoring educational and recreational activities, fostering a strong sense of community, and any other services or activity so that residents of the eastern shoreline of Connecticut and nearby areas can live their lives to the fullest, as they grow older, in their own homes.

Background

  The Shoreline Village CT (SVCT) was launched on May 1st 2013 and we are now delivering services to our members after 2 years of planning.

Our mission is to help seniors stay at home, as a vibrant part of the local communities of Branford, North Branford, Guilford and Madison. We offer a wide range of services including transportation by volunteers, health and educational programming as well as the ability to make new friends and have some fun at our parties and gatherings.
 

What is the service area of the Shoreline Village CT?

Initially we are starting in the towns of Branford, North Branford, Guilford, and Madison, but seek members from anywhere along the eastern Connecticut shoreline.

Who runs SVCT and where is it located ?

As a Connecticut-based non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, SVCT is led by an unpaid Board of Directors and staffed by professionals. Our office will be conveniently located in Branford near Exit 54 off Interstate 95. We are accessible to all members by phone and email.

What are the types of membership and the cost?

The primary membership is either Active (full services) or Supporting (educational and social activities only). Our annual fee of $700 for individuals and $1000 for couples is based on regional costs and patterns of household usage of Village services. However, because the Supporting member does not receive services from SVCT, the membership is tax deductible. Other types of membership include Donors and Volunteers.

While a single annual payment is preferred, monthly payment plans can be arranged. National experience shows single members use at least as many services as couples, sometimes more. Perhaps this increased usage is because of the lack of another pair of helping hands at home.

What is included in my annual member fee?

A dependable, personal guide to the transportation, medical, household and social services you may require to help you stay in your own home as long as you wish. Many of the costs will be fully met by your membership fee, others will be discounted, and still others such as nursing care will not be.

SVCT can provide "through your door" services not available from publicly funded senior programs. The national experience of villages indicates the biggest need is for transportation, assistance at home and home maintenance.

Impact
Accomplishments
1. Successful launch of the Shoreline Village with 108 members
2. Over 300 services provided to 20 individual seniors enabling them to continue living at home.
3. Creation of joint partnership with VNA Community Healthcare in Guilford for service to our senior members.
 
Goals:
1. Support for monthly newsletter to members: costs $300/issue totaling $3600 per year. 
2. Increase membership, especially low income seniors
3. Increase Board size from current 9 to 15. 
 
Needs
1. Increase membership through community outreach. Many seniors do not use email routinely and therefore printed newsletter is critical. Each issue distributed to 500 members and friends. 
2. Increase Board membership and diversity.  We need to add certain skills to the Board such as legal and accounting expertise.
3. Hire personnel to manage membership recruitment.  Currently all recruitment falls on the Board which needs staff assitance to continue to grow.  (At $25,000 a year)

Board Chair Statement

Shoreline Village CT is a young non-profit organization whose mission is to enable Shoreline seniors (mainly in Branford, Guilford, and Madison) to continue to live independently in their own homes, thus avoiding the expense and the psychological shock of moving into a communal residential facility.  Shoreline Village is part of a national network of several hundred villages that share information and ideas with each other.

 

Bette Davis allegedly said that “growing old isn’t for sissies.”  But, it’s easier if you’re at home, helped by family, friends, and neighbors who believe in the value of staying at home.  My wife and I are in our early seventies, and we are determined to remain in our home as long as we possibly can.  My parents are 94 and 97, and they’re still in their own home.  Virtually all our friends are in their own homes. Life is better at home, and, when the time comes, so is death.

 

Shoreline Village CT currently has about 100 members, but the national experience indicates 150-200 members to be economically viable long term.  We have created a “health safety net” for our members in partnership with VNA Community Healthcare.  We have organized a battalion of big-hearted volunteers who help with transportation and other day-to-day chores.  We have organized a program of social and cultural events, some designed mainly for our members, others designed to keep our members knitted together with the larger community.  We are working with other non-profits to make our services available to those facing financial hardships. 

 

But we face many challenges, especially these two: we need to expand our membership, and we need to make sure that we are delivering to our members the optimal portfolio of activities and services.  And we’re doing all this on a shoestring budget.  Although we have a part-time employee who is Director of Services, we do not have an Executive Director, nor do we have an employee focused on building our membership.  What we do have is a hands-on, roll-your-sleeves-up board whose basic motto is “no job is too big, or too small.” 

 

We opened our doors in May 2013 after several years of grass roots organizing. We are at a critical point in our development with much work ahead of us. So we are excited to be participating in the giveGreater effort of The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.  This program has the potential to deliver some very welcome help at a very important time.

Programs
Description
Within this Program category, the Shoreline Village CT has 2 initiatives:
1. Collaboration with VNA Community Healthcare where seniors are registered with the VNA and share their primary medical information. Member is then eligible to call the 24 hour a day/7 day a week medical hotline for advice from a nurse manager. A designated nurse manager has been assigned to the program from the VNA.
2. In collaboration with Home Haven in New Haven we are developing a program with Yale-New Haven Hospital to define the role of the Villages in addressing the pressing problem of unexpected readmission to the hospital after discharge.  We expect to initiate the program in the Spring of 2015.
