LifeBridge Community Services (LifeBridge) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower people in the Greater Bridgeport area to build a brighter future. We are our clients’ champion. We listen to them, we teach them to change, we hold them accountable, and we campaign on their behalf. Our goal is to move them from crisis to stability, and to greater levels of self-sufficiency. They define the need. LifeBridge delivers the programs to meet the need.
LifeBridge understands that people impacted by poverty are challenged by a range of complex social, economic, and health issues, and that their plight affects the quality of life and stability of our communities. We have learned that meaningful change requires sustained, multi-dimensional support tailored to the diverse and complex needs of our clients and their families.
We inspire and empower our clients by linking flexible, innovative programs to strengthen personal capability, develop skills, and build a pathway to economic self-sufficiency. Each client receives an individual plan of comprehensive services that are delivered through four core programs: Economic Empowerment, Youth Services, Behavioral Health, and Social Enterprises.
