About Us

We create and implement strategies designed to change the face of addiction. 

We are committed to solving today’s addiction problems for tomorrow’s youth.  

The opioid epidemic and addiction are top-of-mind issues here in Palm Beach County and throughout Florida. We have over three decades of experience as Palm Beach County’s leading nonprofit organization for providing substance abuse prevention and education programs for parents, caregivers, and school-age children. 

We are the largest provider of prevention services in Florida.  

Last year, our work positively impacted the lives of more than 18,000 students, parents, teachers, caregivers, and community members across the state. 

Hanley Foundation’s prevention and education teams are first responders to the addiction battle in schools in 28 Florida counties, including several schools in Palm Beach County. Over the next three years, we’ll serve more than 120,000 Florida students.  

We have a unique perspective on our local community’s needs. 

In the early 1980s, Jack and Mary Jane Hanley retired to Palm Beach County and discovered the absence of any facilities dedicated to quality substance abuse treatment. Through the couple’s visionary leadership, the Hanley Center and Hanley Center Foundation were established.  

Known simply now as Hanley Foundation, our 501(c)(3) organization provides programming and grant support for statewide substance use disorder advocacy, prevention, education, and access to quality treatment. The Hanley Foundation has changed the conversation within families, schools, and the community at large in regards to substance use disorders, their prevention, and their treatment.  

Our multi-pronged approach to addressing addiction works.   

We are committed to keeping youth from experimenting with drugs and alcohol while providing access to quality treatment to individuals who are in need. 

Our targeted and time-tested approach incorporates four primary mission areas:  

  • Prevention – Delay the age of an individual’s first use of alcohol or drugs  
  • Education – Partner with front-line substance use disorders professionals  
  • Treatment Support – Provide financial assistance to recovery via grants  
  • Advocacy – Work with key thought leaders to destigmatize substance use disorders
