Our Approach

Malta Mission is a Medical and Dental Clinic serving those in the Detroit Area who do not have proper access to healthcare. Our team of volunteers work around the clock to provide the best care for our patients. The goal of Malta Mission is to lend a healing hand to those who need it.

Our Story

Every organization has a beginning, and this is where we talk about ours. Louis Mahoney the founder of Malta Medical and Dental Clinic dedicated his life to the underserved portions of Detroit. The Leaders and Volunteers at Malta Mission carry that legacy every day and bring a spirit of charity to each and every individual.
