Under the leadership of Co-Chairs George Ribellino of Norwalk Council 14360 from St. Matthew and Greg Matera of Fairfield Council 11077 from Our Lady of Assumption, the golf tournament was a rousing success, raising funds for several organizations including Good Counsel Malta House of CT in Norwalk, a home to feed and shelter women from all backgrounds eager to keep their unborn children.

A Fairfield County landmark giving hope to pregnant women for nearly two decades has entered a collaboration to expand and enhance its help for mothers and their babies.

Malta House, which opened in Norwalk in 1998 to feed and shelter homeless women from all backgrounds eager to keep their unborn children, today officially debuts a new collaboration that renames the home Good Counsel Malta House of Connecticut.

“We’ve formed a collaboration with Good Counsel maternity homes, already well respected in the tri-state area and beyond, to extend our community’s mission improving the lives of moms and infants,” said Kim Petrone, Chair of Malta House.

“Linked with Good Counsel’s network and resources, we’ll be able to provide even greater access to health services, education, job skills and more for expectant and parenting mothers,” Petrone said. “Good Counsel also has the ability to provide care for women with substance abuse and mental health disorders, ensuring that no woman who seeks our help will ever have to be turned away. This capability is a win-win for Connecticut and our home in support of human dignity and family stability.”
