In 2011, Malta House of Care instituted the “Celebrating Wonder Women” awards ceremony and fundraiser for two reasons: to spotlight Connecticut women who are improving their communities, on the stage or behind the scenes – and to support the Malta House of Care Mobile Medical Clinic, which provides free primary health care to uninsured adults in Greater Hartford.

Since then, Malta has honored 63 women for the extraordinary impact they’ve made in their communities, in often very ordinary ways. 

On Thursday, April 25, 2019, Malta honored six more exceptional community servants at a fun and inspirational evening of celebration at the Hartford Marriott Downtown Hotel; click here for a gallery of event photos from The Hartford Courant.
