The Henry Tellis Foundation was founded in October 2012. The founder, also the namesake of the organization, had long envisioned his role being used to inspire change in the lives of young people through community activism.


"It is our goal to provide mentoring, community outreach, education, health and wellness, parental development, and other community-related and charitable programs."




Henry Tellis is a visionary, servant, and friend. He is a man that cannot be missed easily in the community, not only due to his size and presence but also because of his active involvement and advocacy. Throughout his college football career and the subsequent time spent with the NFL, Henry was aware that his purpose extended far beyond yard lines and first downs. His heart never left Montgomery, Alabama as he constantly sought ways to inspire young people to dream and believe. Today, he allows his life to be a story that testifies to the ability of anyone being able to overcome despite their situation.
