Alliance for Community Empowerment, formerly ABCD has been a strong support to the Greater Bridgeport community for half a century. Recently, we have been selected by our funding source to add Norwalk and Westport to our catchment area. I, along with my staff, take this responsibly very seriously and deem it a privilege to be the provider of much needed resources to our most vulnerable community going forward.
In preparation for the future we’ve begun the transformation from ABCD to the Alliance for Community Empowerment. We are rebranding ourselves to ensure that you, our community, is holistically served. We have heard your response to our Community Needs Assessment, and have dedicated Board of Director members, staff, community, state/federal leaders and funders that have a vested interest in you and your family’s success. Over time, we will work to improve and expand our services, diversify our funding sources while partnering with other community agencies to serve our community’s need to evolve out of the cycle of poverty towards self-reliance.
Our promise and commitment to you is grounded in the past success of community champions, such as our past Executive Director and others. We are here to provide linkages and resources with respect and excellence.
Welcome to the new Alliance for Community Empowerment.
