About Us

Highland Rivers Foundation’s mission is to support individuals and communities served by Highland Rivers Behavioral Health through developing resources that enhance access, services, and improve quality of life.

As a non-profit, the Highland Rivers Foundation was founded in 2018 by Melanie Dallas to help fulfill the mission of Highland Rivers Behavioral Health (HRBH), a state-designated provider of behavioral health services that currently serves more than 21,000 economically disadvantaged individuals. The agency serves adults, children, families and veterans in a 13-county area of north Georgia who have limited or no income.

Highland Rivers Foundation was established to fund the financial gaps that exist between state-covered services and what is needed to achieve the highest quality care at HRBH. The Foundation helps to remove barriers to service, expand services, and enhance facilities where services are provided. Through its work, the Foundation helps level the playing field for those with behavioral health challenges.


We have locations in the following counties: Bartow, Cherokee, Cobb, Fannin, Floyd, Gilmer, Gordon, Haralson, Murray, Paulding, Pickens, Polk, Whitfield.
