Talbot House Ministries was founded to be a place of hope for people who had lost hope: the hungry, the homeless, and the poor. Planting the seeds of hope is something we do with everyone who comes through our doors. We plant those seeds through our housing and employment and training programs, as well as through our Good Samaritan Clinic and food services. Our vision goes beyond basic needs services to empower all who come through our doors to become self-sufficient, productive members of society. We are blessed to serve those in need and to facilitate the life renewal of men and women.
The purpose of the Talbot House Ministries fund is to serve as a safety net so we can always provide immediate basic services and opportunities for life renewal for those in need.
Vermont Place Apartments, a program of Talbot House Ministries, will provide case managed, stable housing to people at the lower end of the economic spectrum. People earning just above minimum wage and the disabled.
