The Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority Awards $10,000 to The Hub Family Resource Center

Atlanta, GA, March 29, 2016- Today, as part of their outreach efforts the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority (the "FDHA") has signed on as a supporter of the Hub Family Resource Center ("Hun"). Guided by the principles of safety and confidentiality, high professional standards, and non-discrimination, Hub is an organization designed to assist families when seeking community resources to address behavioral and mental wellness.

"Behavioral Health and Mental Health needs are often the catalyst for other issues that surface in the lives of our constituency. With that, there is a significant need for our communities to have access to appropriate resources. The FDHA is steadfast on its mission to identify organizations that link the community to behavioral health and mental health resources. The first step is partnering with those organizations that can increase accessibility to the right resources. Thereafter, it is a matter of educating the community on where to find those resources. Hub will reduce the gap between the community and access to critical resources in behavioral and mental health services."
(FDHA CEO, Lisa Flagg, Esq.)

The Hub's creation is providing a much needed service - connecting residents with service providers through personal consultation, providing parent education through its Family Life University, which is being launched in April this year, and providing a central point of contact for public entities dealing with the public."

Located in Johns Creek, Georgia the Hub provides assistance with parenting, finding doctors, psychologists, and even probation services. The Hub has a vision of being the central point in North Fulton County connecting families to resources that can help with the increase in behavioral issues within the family and community at large.
