We promote 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.
Residents of Malta House participate in educational programs covering issues of Health, Nutrition, Parenting and Child Development. During their stay at Malta House, mothers also receive guidance designed to foster a positive self image for themselves and their children. Personal finance and budgeting advice is offered to promote self sufficiency as our young families assimilate back into the community.
In addition, each resident participates in an individualized educational component that may include GED preparation or certificate programs at a local community college. We also offer tutoring to support the rigors of each class.
If you would like to speak with someone at Malta House about joining the Residential Program, please give us a call at (203) 857-0088. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Our alumnae always know they can find help and hugs when they or their children need it. As they transition to independent life, our Partnering Success Program provides ongoing follow-up assistance such as counseling, childcare, housing subsidies and transportation. This program serves scores of Malta House alumnae per year, and often includes support for the educational needs of the children.
Malta House receives many generous donations of baby equipment, clothing, diapers and food. We have become known as a resource for these necessities and feel fortunate that we are able to share our gifts with former residents and other mothers in need who are living in the Fairfield County area.
