1 LEADERSHIP PROFILE CEO Hillside, Inc. Atlanta, GA Hillside will be recognized as a leader in the delivery of innovative, effective, quality healthcare services to the most severely emotionally disturbed children and their families. --Hillside vision statement THE OPPORTUNITY Hillside ranks among the top treatment centers nationally for children and adolescents experiencing difficulties with emotional and behavioral issues. Located on 14 scenic acres in midtown Atlanta, Hillside was founded in 1888 and is Atlanta s longest serving social service agency. With a $15 million annual budget and 250 staff, including 17 therapists and two full-time Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, Hillside provides a continuum of leading-edge approaches that are child and family focused. Hillside staff engages each individual s challenges by building on his or her strengths and replacing potentially dangerous, maladaptive behaviors with healthy, age-appropriate coping skills. The organization is a leader in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Theraplay and Animal Assisted Therapy. As Hillside's beloved CEO prepares to retire this year after 18 years of service, the organization is in a strong position relative to talent, facilities, finances and operations. The new CEO has a bold, exciting mandate: to lead Hillside to broader, more sustainable impact by enhancing its community presence and offerings while continuing to elevate on-campus programs and results.

Up to 80 children and adolescents at a time live on campus for an average stay of 4-5 months, during which time they receive intensive, customized treatment and attend a SACS-accredited school. Hillside s comprehensive continuum of services extends into the community, as wraparound programs for children in foster care or returning to their communities, and as freestanding therapeutic offerings. Hillside s $15 million budget is largely comprised of fees and grants for services from federal, state and local sources; approximately $2 million from Atlanta Public Schools, United Way and other grants; and about $600,000 in private philanthropic donations from individuals and foundations. There is a $16 million endowment. Funded by a recent successful capital campaign, a LEED certified dining hall is under construction. The Committee on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, CARF, recently wrote that Hillside is consistently perceived as a center of excellence. Every child at Hillside follows a course of treatment specially designed for her or him, provided in the least restrictive environment possible. Children and their families benefit from a continuum of programming that can include Residential, Day Programming, Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient services as well as Community Intervention Programs and Therapeutic Foster Care as needed. Hillside's Mission Statement Hillside will provide quality, cost-effective treatment and education to severely emotionally disturbed children and their families. Services will be provided in the least restrictive environment possible in accordance with the needs of the patient.
