Where Hope for Life Abounds

Our Community Needs Malta House

In Fairfield County alone…

According to the most recent Fairfield County, Connecticut demographics data available from the United States Census Bureau released in the American Community Survey in December of 2020, 28% or over 2,500 of the births in Fairfield County are to unmarried mothers alone. Of those, 37.8 % are below the poverty level. Moreover, children in Fairfield County are more than three times as likely to live with a single mother then a single father.

Furthermore, over 110 women are receiving homelessness/housing services which are pregnant or parenting between the ages of 18-24 (30% of total homeless), and “211” reports that approximately 80% of women who request housing are placed on a waiting list.

We are on a mission to change this.

Here is how.

Malta House is the only transitional living program in the state of Connecticut where a mom can stay with her baby for long-term support and a "hand-up" as she journeys to independence and hope.

We need your help…

Since opening our doors in 1998, we have welcomed close to 700 mothers and babies to our home.

But we’re not done yet. We need your help. 

Your Support Means Everything

A young mother comes to us when she is most vulnerable – homeless, pregnant and lacking support and a positive environment. 

Your support means a frightened young mother will have the help she needs to choose life for her unborn, who will come into the world in a loving, safe, nurturing environment.  

Your support ensures these mothers gain financial independence, emotional stability and healthy parenting skills. If the mother thrives, so does her child. Our community becomes stronger when its members are stronger.

Your support means protecting the unborn by giving hope.

Hope for Life.

What is Our Impact?

  • Mothers become more resourceful, more resilient and receive guidance in parenting while providing for their children.
  • Young women are encouraged to complete their education, and they’re supported on their career path.
  • Children are safe and thriving as their parents are taught how to measure and improve their child’s development.
  • Families gain financial security as they become less dependent on state assistance.
