There are so many wonderful causes in the Atlanta community but Skyland Trail is in the business of transforming lives. I can not imagine anything more worthwhile than that.

The Skyland Trail Associates is an auxiliary group of women who support Skyland Trail through fundraising efforts and special events. Associates also donate their time, skills and interests through volunteer opportunities supporting client activities.

Over the past decade, the Associates have raised funds to support critical client services and community education, including the purchase of a client bus for transportation, an EKG machine for our primary care clinic, a renovated kitchen in one of our client residences, campus-wide Wi-Fi, and the creation of Skyland Trail’s magazine, Journeys.

Associates Fund 2016:  Over the past two years, the Associates Fund successfully raised $100,000 in support of the Rollins Campus, allowing Skyland Trail to name the Associates Cafe in honor of the group.  The cafe is a unique space to foster socialization and engagement in treatment for our young adults clients.
