Malta receives CVS Health Foundation Grant

We are thrilled to announce that Malta House of Care has been awarded a generous grant from the CVS Health Foundation 2023 Hometown Fund! This grant is part of $2 million in grant from the CVS Health Foundation to nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. This partnership aims to advance health equity, provide equitable access to care, and address health-related social needs within our communities. The CVS Health Foundation concentrated its investments in organizations like Malta that are working to increase access to health care services for underinsured or uninsured populations and improving health outcomes for individuals with chronic diseases – with a heightened focus on heart disease and mental health.

Back in April, CVS Aetna employees dedicated their time to assemble personal care bags filled with full-size essential items for our patients. We received approximately 300 of these wonderful bags, which were distributed to all patients. We captured some heartwarming moments of a few of our patients receiving these bags, highlighting the immediate impact of this initiative.

Here are some key highlights of this partnership:

  • Grant Award: Malta House of Care is one of 18 organizations in CT selected to receive a grant from the CVS Health Foundation 2023 Hometown Fund.
  • Impact: The grant will support our mission to advance health equity and provide equitable access to care!
  • Personal Care Bags: CVS Aetna employees assembled 300 goodie bags filled with essential items, which were distributed to all of Malta’s patients.
  • Community Engagement: CVS Health Foundation’s involvement extends to engaging with our community and understanding our needs better, as evidenced by their active participation and visits.

“When people have access to consistent health care and are equipped with the supporting services like affordable housing and healthy food, they are better positioned to improve their health,” said Sheryl Burke, senior vice president of corporate social responsibility and chief sustainability officer, CVS Health. “Our Hometown Fund grantees selected this year serve as examples of the ongoing work that is the focus of our philanthropic programs.”

The CVS Health Foundation Hometown Fund was created in 2022 to support CVS Health’s neighbors and local communities who are working toward improving health outcomes locally. For more information about the Hometown Fund and to see a list of all the grant recipients, click here.

We are incredibly grateful for the support from CVS Health and look forward to continuing our work together to make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve. Thank you!
