Be The Light: Shine Hope at the Talbot House Lecagy Gala

Be the Light: Shine Hope at the Talbot House Legacy Gala Imagine a world where a single mother’s smile isn’t hidden by toothache, where a veteran doesn’t face despair alone, where a child feels safe and nurtured. This is the world Talbot House Ministries strives to create, and you can be the light that makes it shine brighter.


Zaina’s Story: A Spark of Hope

Zaina walked into Talbot House Ministries with a burden heavier than most. A painful dental issue compounded by a work injury left her jobless, evicted, and living in a motel room that devoured her meager savings. Despair clouded her future. But at Talbot House, a beacon of hope emerged. Our Good Samaritan Clinic eased her dental pain, and our case management services became a lifeline. Zaina learned about the STEP program, a safe haven offering stability and support. Relief washed over her – a chance to rebuild her life. Within the program, Zaina blossomed. With guidance, she saved for a security deposit, found affordable housing, and recovered from surgery. On May 31st, 2024, Zaina proudly walked into her new apartment, a testament to her strength and the transformative power of Talbot House.

Be the Light for Families, Veterans, Women, and Children Zaina’s story is just one example of the countless lives Talbot House touches. We offer a warm embrace to families facing homelessness, veterans struggling with PTSD, women seeking empowerment, and children yearning for a brighter tomorrow.

But we can’t do this alone. The Talbot House Legacy Gala is your chance to Be the Light. Join us for an unforgettable evening filled with inspiration, connection, and the power to make a difference.
