Fulton Opens One-of-a-Kind Facility for Youth | Print |

You have to see it to believe it!  The newly renovated Oak Hill Child, Adolescent and Family Center, located at 2805 Metropolitan Parkway in Atlanta, officially re-opens Thursday, February 7th with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00am. The center sits on a 22-acre campus and will provide coordinated care to children and their families from all over Fulton County.

This is the fourth integrated health/service center the Board of Commissioners has opened in the four years since I pledge to combat health disparities. Formerly a setting for behavioral health care, services at Oak Hill have been expanded to include specialty medical and oral health are, an education center, and youth workforce development. An exciting new addition is a teaching kitchen which will be used to provide nutrition education and healthy cooking classes.  The campus also features a garden, a gymnasium and a walk/run track. AARA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) funding paid for a majority of the ten-month renovation.

Again, you have to see it to believe it!  Visit www.oakhillkids.org to take a look.
