Emily Acker, Hillside CEO & President in Atlanta

A letter from our CEO

I’m excited to see tremendous growth continue to spring up from a foundation of dedicated, comprehensive care that began over a century ago. I have been so proud to witness children and families transform as they receive life-changing care delivered by our determined staff with encouragement and hope.

Hillside’s long history is characterized by our commitment to evolve alongside ongoing advancements in mental healthcare. This year, those advancements have occurred across a broad range, as we expand to provide services to individuals and families with an array of different needs. In order to address these needs, we employ evidence-based therapeutic modalities, rooted in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, to deliver residential, community intervention, treatment foster care, outpatient services and, just recently the opening of Experience DBT, our specialized day program.

As a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, Hillside is only able to provide this growing array of services thanks to the generosity of our supporters. If you are moved by our important work and wish to assist us in our mission to provide hope and healing, please consider making a donation.

As we enjoy our history of success and look to the future, I am so grateful that we continue to touch new lives every day.
