Talbot House Ministries

Where Broken Lives Find Hope

Talbot House is Lakeland’s most comprehensive provider of services for homeless men and women.

We were founded to be a place of hope for people who had lost hope: the hungry, the homeless, and the poor.

Through the love of God, we provide those in need with immediate basic services and opportunities for life renewal.
