Since 2011, Malta House of Care has hosted the “Celebrating Wonder Women” awards ceremony and fundraiser for two reasons: to honor “ordinary” Connecticut women who are improving their communities in extraordinary ways, and to support the Malta House of Care Mobile Medical Clinic, which provides free primary health care to uninsured adults in Greater Hartford. The Wonder Women Class of ’20 will be honored on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, at the Hartford Marriott Downtown Hotel. Originally, this event had been scheduled for April 23, 2020, but was postponed in March 2020 amid serious concerns about the impact of the Coronavirus.

Over the years, Malta has celebrated 69 unsung heroines from every walk of life. Click here for a gallery of photos from “Celebrating Wonder Women ’19,” provided by The Hartford Courant.
