BRIDGEPORT — Time could be running out on an encampment that homeless people have set up under a bridge on the east side of Bridgeport, with state officials saying they must leave. But the city’s social workers direct them to a shelter.
Camp residents have been living there for about two months. Some of them previously slept outside the Main Street courthouse in downtown Bridgeport, while a few lived behind the juvenile detention center before the area was fenced off, some attorneys say. A homeless man who started the camp says some of its residents have been denied federal housing vouchers.
