In Fairfield County alone…
There are over 300 births each year to unmarried women ages 18-24 who are living below the poverty line and having their first or second child.
Over 110 women are receiving homelessness/housing services who are pregnant or parenting between the ages 14-24 (30% of total homeless) and “211” reports that approximately 80% of women who request housing are put on a waiting list.
We are on a mission to change this.
Here is how.
Malta House is the only home for pregnant women above the age of 18 in Fairfield County, and one of a limited number of programs for young homeless mothers and their babies.
With 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.
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.
