Is it worth it to take singing lessons if I am a truly horrible singer?

All my life I've never felt comfortable singing and it sounds horrible. I don't know much about music but it seems like my voice goes flat and I have a hard time hitting high notes. My husband says it sounds like an alien trying to imitate the singing of earth people.
I would like to learn how to be comfortable enough with my singing where I could sing karaoke and possibly Irish folk songs. Right now I am very very far from being able to sing in public.
Is it possible to get better starting from being terrible or are singing lessons just for people who already can sing but want to get better?

I have a beautiful speaking voice and I'm hoping that somehow I could translate that to singing. If anyone has learned how to sing decently when they have started with a bad voice and no confidence I would love to hear them.
Also, would love to hear any recommendations for teachers in the Syracuse area.
