Family Resources

Every family faces a set of unique challenges. Our primary goal is to offer families the support needed to overcome these challenges and help them lead self-sufficient and fulfilling lives.

Community Closet

The Community Closet is a space where families can access gently used clothing, personal care items and linens free of charge. Clients may select up to three outfits per family member once every month. We also operate the Diaper Bank distribution as well as provide feminine hygiene products on a monthly basis. Enrollment is required. Please call Jenn Sanchez at 203-368-5645 to inquire.


The Community Closet is located at LifeBridge, 475 Clinton Avenue, Bridgeport CT 06605 and can be reached at 203-368-5624.

If there is a special/emergency need, please contact Catherine Ruiz at 203-368-5624 to schedule an appointment.

! Community Closet Donations

The Community Closet is open to LifeBridge clients to “shop” by appointment only. Please contact Catherine Ruiz at 203-368-5624 or to schedule an appointment or to make a clothing/coat/warm linens donation.  If interested in volunteer opportunities, please request/complete a volunteer application. On a hygiene and quality note — please consider quality of goods being donated to be in line with those that would be taken to a consignment or resale shop. We appreciate all donations being laundered and dropped off in a way that allows us to make them quickly available to clients. Thank you!

Thank you to the Federation of Jewish Philanthropy of Upper Fairfield County, Dignity Grows and The Undies Project for their support of the Community Closet.
