Our Mission

Malta House promotes the dignity of God-given life by providing a nurturing home environment, support services and independent living skills to pregnant and parenting mothers of all faiths and their children.

Mothers at Malta House receive counseling, financial education, and parental development followed by transitional and post-residential support.

Our History

The vision for Malta House came 25 years ago when a young father learned that there was no safe place for many pregnant women in Fairfield County, who chose life for their unborn. These vulnerable young families often lived in sub-standard conditions or with an abusive partner, and had nowhere to turn for safety and support.

After many years of hard work and prayers by many people faithful to its mission, and through many miracles, Malta House opened its doors in 1998 to offer food and shelter, and also to give hope for the future. Now, nearly 25 years later, over 800 hundred 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.

In The Beginning

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 501(c)3 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 need of the programs and services we offer.

We welcome your help in providing Hope for Life as our Malta House family continues to grow.
