Our Mission

Our Mission is to create jobs, by creating and expanding Green businesses and provide training in the growing green economy so families throughout the region can achieve economic self-sufficiency while creating more sustainable communities.

Greater Bridgeport Community Enterprises (GBCE) is poised for rapid growth and expansion through deepening collaborations with current partners. We anticipate opening new green low-tech, labor-intensive enterprises to create jobs for unemployed disadvantaged residents.

Our current and future enterprises will all embody the “triple bottom line” of environmental sustainability: social good in hiring disadvantaged residents; economic development to address unemployment and poverty; to build the tax base for Bridgeport; and to revitalize the city’s neighborhoods. Our current activity has created 20 jobs that put more than $400,000 in salaries back into the local community.

At GBCE, we believe in a hand up, not a hand out.
