Skyland Trail to Dedicate Dorothy C. Fuqua Center

ATLANTA — Skyland Trail, a non-profit treatment facility for adults with mental illness, is pleased to announce a November 12th ribbon cutting celebration for the Dorothy C. Fuqua Center. The renovations and additions to the facility were funded by Initiatives for Program and Campus Expansion, a capital campaign launched in 2005 which raised $11.7 million for capital enhancements and programming to serve adults with serious mental illness.

The Fuqua Center includes a training and education center, as well as computer learning center to be used by clients of Skyland Trail’s Vocational Services Program. This facility will allow clients access to state-of-the-art technology, better preparing them to return to school or for employment when they reintegrate into the community following treatment at Skyland Trail.

“We are very excited with the expansion and state-of-the-art improvements to our facility,” President and CEO Beth Finnerty said. “These additions will allow us to better serve adults with mental illness who come to Skyland Trail for treatment. By providing them with the facilities to train them for successful careers in the community, we are giving our clients more hope for their future.”
