The vision for Malta House came almost 20 years ago when a young father learned that there was “no room at the inn” for many pregnant women in Fairfield County, who chose life for their unborn. These vulnerable young families often found themselves living on the street or in sub-standard conditions.
After many years of hard work and prayers by many people faithful to its mission, and through many miracles, Malta House opened its doors to offer food and shelter, and also to give hope for the future. Hundreds of mothers and their children have walked through these doors seeking a new vision and direction for their life. Malta House continues to change hearts, lives and our community.
The initial leadership and start-up funding came from members in the Order of Malta, Good Counsel, Inc, and others. Malta House opened its doors in 1998 as an independent 501c3 charitable organization. Today, the mission of Malta House benefits from its broad community of support – both financially and through the efforts of volunteers. We serve women who are marginalized by society and who are in the need of the programs and services we offer.
