Dickinson Center, Inc. (DCI), a non-profit organization and affiliate of Journey Health System, is thrilled to announce a generous donation towards their St. Marys building project, the “Building for Tomorrow” capital campaign, from Mr. and Mrs. J. Paul Robertson.

The Robertson’s presented their check at The Children's Center- DCI Parents as Teachers which will be part of DCI’s new building at 28 Railroad Street in St. Marys. Catering to families with children aged 5 and under, the center fosters endless creativity. As DCI progresses with their “Building for Tomorrow” initiative, they invite families with young children to visit the Children’s Center, offering them a firsthand view of the new building’s construction progress and the enriching experiences awaiting within. 

Paul Robertson stated, “Mental and behavioral healthcare is a growing need today, even in our area. This wonderful project by Dickinson allows Barb and I to assist in a small way as well as give back to this great community.”

Thanks to the collective generosity of businesses, organizations, foundations, and individuals like Paul and Barb Robertson, DCI has raised $1,175,101. With $324,899 left to reach their $1.5 million goal, Dickinson and the campaign committee extend their hopes that others will join in supporting their cause. Every contribution brings them closer to their objective.  With the dedicated efforts of DCI’s Capital Campaign Committee and ongoing community support, DCI is confident in achieving their goal, ensuring accessible, essential mental health care and wellness services for those in need.
