Tickets are on sale now through The Palace website, https://palacestamford.org.

“The Midtown Men” is comprised of the 4 original members of Broadway’s “Jersey Boys,” and is considered tops in the 1960s-hits music genre. Their performances are exceptionally engaging and appeal to a wide-range of audiences. Malta House is excited to feature “The Midtown Men” this year, benefiting its much-needed services in our community.
About Malta House
The vision for Malta House came over 20 years ago when a young father learned that there were few services for the many homeless pregnant women in Fairfield County who chose life for their unborn. Vulnerable young mothers often found themselves living on the street or in sub-standard conditions. Once accepted into our residential program—which can accommodate up to 10 mothers—the young women are supported with programs aimed at self-sufficiency, including training in parenting, education, career, and financial security. Unlike a shelter, Malta House provides enriching residential services that also include spiritual direction and personal development. It is the only maternity group home for pregnant women over 18 years—and one of only a limited number of residential programs for young parenting mothers and their children—in Fairfield County.
The residential program lasts up to 18 months with a “Partnering Success” program that provides follow-up services and outreach to guide the women through the initial stages of life as parents on their own.
Malta House board chair Kim Petrone says, “We are excited to host this benefit concert featuring such a fun and entertaining group of musicians. Proceeds from the evening go directly to helping the mothers and babies who call Malta House ‘home’, and we are grateful to all of our sponsors for their strong support.”
