This Year’s
State of the Child Report
is Now Available

Since our founding in 1985, an important part of BCAC’s mission has been to provide the Greater Bridgeport community with a comprehensive assessment of the lives of children through our annual State of the Child in Bridgeport report. Year after year, much of the data reveals how too many Bridgeport children endure poverty and its many related struggles. Yet, within Bridgeport, progress is being made. Each day, in a thousand little ways, people are taking steps to ensure that all Bridgeport children receive the nurturing and supports they need.
