Nursery

  • Nursery Hours are from 7 AM – 7 PM. We are seeking a minimum requirement of two hours once a month.
  • If your gift is with infants and young children, the Malta House nursery will feel like home to you. Our babies come to the nursery as early as 6 weeks old and up to one year of age. Having a hand in molding a child’s development is an awesome and exciting responsibility. The rewards abound. The head of our nursery provides guidance and training for all who lovingly embrace our babies, so one should not hesitate to “share the love”.

Mother Mentor

  • Mother Mentor volunteers have a unique opportunity to positively influence the life of a young mother and her baby. As a responsible adult, your experience will lead a mom to recognize the countless possibilities that lie before her. Through this partnership, the two committed parties may foster professional growth, interpersonal relationships and possibly career development.
  • A mentor may share with a mentee (or protégé) information about her own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modeling. A mentor may help with exploring careers, setting goals, developing contacts, and identifying resources.

Meal Prep

  • Prepare meals for our moms to assist them on their busy school and work days.
  • If you like cooking family-style meals, this is the place for you! In our new kitchen we offer a spacious open environment for you to prepare a home-cooked meal or teach a cooking class.
  • For those feeling a need to give back to the community, but cannot spare the time away from home, you may consider preparing a meal for our mothers! Dinner would be a wonderful gift after working or being in school all day. Nothing fancy – just a simple casserole and salad will more than fit the bill!

Community Outreach

  • Runs twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Saturday between 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM.
  • Our Community Outreach program is an opportunity for us to support low-income moms throughout Fairfield County. We need your help to spread the love by creating care packages with diapers, wipes, and other donations we can offer.
  • We also have many families that do not have a vehicle to collect the items they need. For this, we will need transporters to help deliver their care packages. And for those who love to organize, we need support throughout the week to help maintain the donation room.
  • Would you please join both our Facebook Groups? We have a Malta Moms group for our graduating moms who have become independent, and our Community Outreach group that supports low-income moms in Fairfield County.
