Who We Are

Our Vision

Our vision is to become the most effective and most emulated neighborhood association in Boston's South End neighborhood.


Our Mission

WSANA’s mission is to provide a forum for the discussion of issues that impact the neighborhood—safety, development, cleanliness—and to amplify the voices of its residents with the city government, police, developers, restaurants, business owners, and social and health service providers. Whether you own or rent, work or play here, you are welcome to attend our meetings.

Our Story

The Worcester Square Area Neighborhood Association (WSANA) was legally established on June 4th, 1978 by Joseph McCallion, Bernard Towle, and Frances Moore, residents at that time of Worcester Square and East Springfield Street.

WSANA encompasses more than Worcester Square! According to the 1978 map, its boundaries were Northampton Street from Washington Street to Albany Street, Albany Street from Northampton Street to Plympton Street,  Plympton Street from Albany Street to Harrison Avenue, Harrison Avenue from Plympton Street to East Brookline Street, East Brookline Street from Harrison Avenue to what is know now as Father Gilday Street, East Concord Street from Father Gilday to Washington Street and Washington Street from East Concord Street to Northampton Street.

 

Meet Our Executive Board

WSANA has a 12 person executive board that sets the agenda for the monthly meeting and plans annual events including earth day clean ups and an annual tree lighting in the Worcester Square park.
