Center Point, which has served Hall County for five decades from its Gainesville location, is expanding to South Hall with an office on Atlanta Highway in Oakwood to serve the rapidly growing area. Center Point is funded by private donations, churches, foundations, local governments, Gainesville and Hall County school systems, United Way and state grants.

Center Point was founded in 1967 by four area churches with the mission to supplement and broaden religious studies for local youth. While the agency provides support to the Gainesville City and Hall County school systems, it operates independently as a SACS-accredited academic program. Through the years, the original Center Point mission has further evolved with the hiring of a team of educators and licensed clinical psychologists, therapists, and social workers.
