Our Mission


The mission of Groton Neighbors is to help each other sustain independent lives at home and stay connected in our community.

As a member of the national Village-to-Village Network, we believe that this neighbor-to-neighbor approach to providing transportation services and household assistance together with the array of programs and activities in the Groton area will enable our friends and neighbors to remain welcome, vibrant, connected, and visible in our community.
