Thomas Merton Family Center's 30th Annual Celebrity Breakfast Featuring Dan Orlovsky

Celebrating 50 years of service, the Thomas Merton Family Center (TMFC) transitioned to a new facility in December 2023. Initially founded by a Sacred Heart University prayer group, TMFC has ...grown from distributing sandwiches on the streets of Bridgeport to offering a comprehensive range of services, always delivered with dignity, respect, and love.

Our services have evolved over the years to include the following:
Breakfast and lunch to over 300 guests daily
Case management
Healthy food pantry shopping
Showers and a mailing service for our homeless population
Largest day shelter in the region
Immigration legal services
Housing assistance

Through collaborations with other organizations, we will also be offering:
Healthcare, dental care, and mental health counseling
Job training
Classes through CT State Community College Housatonic
ESL classes
Financial literacy classes

Since relocating, our impact has grown substantially. Connie’s Eat Smart Marketplace Food Pantry program now supports triple the individuals and double the households, with a surge in new registrations. This underscores the urgency of our mission, echoing Thomas Merton's words, "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another."
