The mission of Talbot Mentors is to work to ensure that all young people in Talbot County have the opportunity to mature into engaged and productive members of their communities. Through consistent support, guidance, coaching and role modeling, our volunteer mentors will strive to instill values and standards, and help these young people prepare for success in their personal and professional lives.


Chesapeake Cats & Dogs (CCAD) is a lifetime haven and no-kill animal rescue that is dedicated to rehabilitating and providing a second chance to cats and dogs that have been abandoned, abused, lost, strayed, or surrendered.

Through our community outreach events around the region, we teach and encourage responsible pet ownership and pet population control. Our all-volunteer organization works diligently to locate loving and responsible owners who wish to make their new pets members of their family—forever!

CCAD remains committed to helping end the needless overpopulation, death, abuse, and neglect of dogs and cats in our area and improving their lives as well as the lives of their new owners.


mentalThe Veterans Fund program at the Mental Health Association in Talbot County (MHATC) is a one-time only, direct assistance program for veterans who do not qualify for typical assistance programs, or may be waiting for their VA benefits to take effect.Men and Woman who receive a grant from the Veterans Fund are in desperate situations; likely in need of medical care for themselves or their children,  or in imminent danger of losing their homes, their utilities, transportation and more. Since beginning this program, MHATC has helped a great many veterans get the emergency funds they have needed to continue productive lives.Requests made to Veterans Fund for assistance far exceed our ability to help some of these family’s through a most difficult time in their life. 100% of donations received are used directly to benefit United States Military Veterans and their families.Committed to serve those who have served, MHATC takes no administrative fees from this program.   http://mhamdes.org/veterans.htm
