As part of our mission to serve the homeless population of Polk County, Talbot House Ministries offers on-campus transitional and permanent supportive housing, as well as off-site housing at the Vermont Place Apartments. Tenants continue to receive wrap-around supportive services including case management, employment training, placement, and financial education to promote self-sufficiency.
Talbot House Ministries is also a partner of the Continuum of Care overseen by the Homeless Coalition of Polk County. Direct referrals from the coalition (individuals and families needing rapid rehousing) are sent to the Housing Department and are offered assistance based on availability and openings.
Talbot House Ministries’ newest affordable housing initiative is the Vermont Place Apartments, serving low and very low-income working adults, veterans, and the disabled. Renovations were completed in April 2021 and all units are now occupied. For more information, please call (863) 687-8475.
