Below are organizations that Talley & Twine has partnered with and/or supported. We encourage you to take a look at their missions and websites and consider contributing to their causes.


Founded in 1991 by a small group of Portsmouth residents who were concerned about the homeless individuals they saw on the streets, Portsmouth Volunteers for the Homeless set out to be the primary provider of emergency shelter for single homeless individuals and to move them from dependency to self-sufficiency, through supportive services in cooperation with other organizations in the Portsmouth area.


The Payne Foundation is a charitable organization that encourages the development and support of activities, other organizations and programs that improve the health, well-being, and education of youth.










Established in 1982, Camp Horizon was developed with the goal of reaching out and improving the lives of abused and neglected children in the Atlanta area.  By partnering with the Atlanta area Division of Family and Children Services and Camp Twin Lakes, children aged 8 to 23 are taught life skills such as anger management, personal safety, and self-control. The children are constantly given sincere encouragement in order to make healthy choices and improve their overall self-esteem.


With the belief that finances, lack of information or resources should not be a reason that those who want to further their education cannot, the Next Step Education Foundation was formed. This educational, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization is a team that offers services that help students with college acceptance.  Whether it is answering questions about deciding on a college, completing college applications or applying for financial aid, they are here to help. The Next Step Education Foundation can also say with pride that 100% of students that have completed their College Experience Program were accepted into an institution of higher learning after graduation.



EMM's mission is to enlighten the minds of youth to see past their current barriers. This program is dedicated to promoting positive decision making and increasing knowledge in all aspects of life. We want to ensure that each young person has the proper mindset and tools to promote a brighter future as well as set them up for success.



When The Birthing Project was launched in 1988. It was meant to have ten community volunteers offer support through one on one friendships, education, and support to ten pregnant teenagers and women with the hope to decrease infant mortality and morbidity in the African American community.  Now, through over 90 national Birthing Projects which has seen over 10,000 babies born, they continue to provide medical and social support to pregnant women and their children up until the child's first birthday. The Birthing Project services target African American women, however, pregnant women of all ethnicities are welcome to take advantage of the medical care and social support offered in order to have the best possible birth outcome.
