From News Channel 15, Fort Wayne, Ind.:

From the outside it may just look like another burger joint trying to make it in Huntington, but inside, it’s much more. Malta Burgers opened for business Wednesday. It’s a fast food restaurant aimed at giving homeless men a second chance.

Only one paid employee works at the restaurant. The rest of the men live in the Malta House, a not-for-profit men’s shelter in Huntington.

10 men currently live in the Malta House. They sign up for a year-long discipleship program with the faith-based organization, working six days a week in a thrift store, handyman program, or the new restaurant. The entire profit for Malta Burgers goes right back in to the organization’s ministry. It receives no government funding.
