Bridgeport Police Department joins forces with Habitat for Humanity

Posted: Updated:

The Bridgeport Police Department is joining Habitat for Humanity to build safe and affordable housing in the area.

The new partnership is hoping to make a positive impact on homeowners in the community. Their goal is to make houses feel like homes.

Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez says volunteering with Habitat for Humanity will help with their community policing, specifically in the East End of the city.

Police officers recently helped hammer some new walls for the 15 homes Habitat for Humanity is building in Bridgeport.

Cathy Collins, the CEO for Habitat for Humanity for coastal Fairfield County, said they have built more than 225 homes in Bridgeport in the last 35 years and that the partnership will keep neighborhoods safer.
