Habitat Honors Bridgeport at Hearts & Hammers

Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County (Habitat CFC) is pleased to announce that it will honor the City of Bridgeport and Mayor Bill Finch at its 14th annual Hearts and Hammers Gala on Saturday, March 9 (Brooklawn Country Club). The event, celebrating a strong 27 year history between the City of Bridgeport and Habitat CFC, will also feature cocktails, dinner, dancing and live and silent auctions. To date, 144 of the 172 Fairfield County Habitat homes are located in Bridgeport. This gala acknowledges the City’s ongoing commitment to transfer building lots to Habitat. Such investment becomes the foundation upon which previously blighted and delinquent neighborhoods are rebuilt. As Mayor Finch explains, “More than anything else, Habitat gives people hope…it gives people the hope that helps bring people into the middle class. It’s a proven fact that if someone owns their home, they’re more likely to vote, more likely to pay attention to their children’s school, and so…we have more stable families, we have taxpayers and we have voters. These families make up a block, blocks make up a neighborhood and neighborhoods make the city.” Habitat families become active community participants and help sustain Fairfield County’s economic vitality.

Habitat CFC is an independently run, local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. It seeks to build community and improve lives by partnering with low-income families, community volunteers and donors to build simple, decent, safe, affordable neighborhoods.
