About Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County
Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County (Habitat CFC) is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI).
Habitat CFC is an independent, locally run, IRS 501(c) (3) organization, headquartered in Bridgeport and working throughout Coastal Fairfield County. Habitat CFC was founded in 1985 as Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bridgeport, and has expanded into Habitat CFC with outreach beyond the greater Bridgeport area. We have built over 200 homes in Fairfield County since 1985.
We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing new homes and rehabilitating previously owned Habitat homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. We also operate a ReStore — a retail store that accepts donations of, and then resells, furniture, appliances and building materials, both new and used.
Habitat CFC activities in the local area include more than just building homes for deserving families, we manage the construction, provide mortgage banking services for homeowners, perform real estate site selections, build community partnerships, fundraise, and select and support deserving, qualified families with social services.
