Last quarter was a time of celebration and progress for Malta House, a residential program serving pregnant and parenting women facing homelessness. Two families successfully transitioned from Malta House to their own homes after receiving 20 months of support and earning their high school diplomas, among other accomplishments.
The program welcomed a new Community Services Manager, Ruth Menard, who brings experience as an administrator in crisis and homeless management services.
The Partnering Success Program launched a monthly peer support group called "Chat & Chew" to engage new families and offer networking opportunities.
Malta House continues to serve nearly 150 community outreach families with weekly diapers and basic needs distributions, as well as partnering with CT Food Share to distribute food to needy families.
The Residential Program has served 99 unduplicated families, with an average stay of nine months. Partnering Success currently has 24 enrolled families.
Residents are enjoying weekly yoga lessons, which provide an opportunity for physical activity and mindfulness practices to support their overall health and well-being.
The program also recognizes the importance of mental health support and has started using the services of the Rowan Center for clinical therapy sessions for moms.
Thank you for supporting Malta House's mission to serve pregnant and parenting young women facing homelessness and crises. Your contributions help make these successes possible.
