It’s that time of year again! Everyone is rushing to buy the latest and greatest gifts for their loved ones. The malls packed with last minute shopper’s scrambling to fulfill their list’s. It’s easy to forget about those who are just scrambling to find food, shelter, or warm clothing. To some this time of year means something totally different then the hustle and bustle for gifts. These are the people who see this time of year as a struggle because they know the cold comes with the holidays. We tend to forget about the true meaning of this season “The Season for Giving.” The Malta house in Norwalk, CT is here to remind us of just how much giving to someone in need can be the greatest gift of all. Not only are you fulfilling a wish you are helping people to survive.
This is the 4th year in a row the Jillian Klaff Homes team has contributed to the Malta House in Norwalk, CT. This year we supported 10 deserving families and helped make their holiday a little brighter. The Malta House offers food, shelter and hope for the future. It provides a nurturing home environment, support services, and independent living skills to expectant mothers of all faiths, and to their babies.
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 the young families assimilate back into the community.
In addition, each resident agrees to participate in an individualized educational component that may include GED preparation or certificate programs at a local community college. Tutoring is provided.
Bring some joy to those in need….It truly is much better to give than receive!
The entire team at Jillian Klaff Homes wishes you a happy & joyous Holiday Season!
