About Us

At Hanley Foundation, we are dedicated to changing the face of addiction through prevention, advocacy, treatment, and recovery support.

We believe that we can help break the cycle of addiction before it begins by providing extensive prevention education throughout our communities. We also believe in the power of healing, which is why we provide treatment and recovery resources for those affected by addiction. 

We are the largest provider of prevention services in Florida.

For over three decades, we’ve worked throughout Florida to provide substance use prevention and education programs that positively impact parents, caregivers, and students. Through our extensive and important work, we have grown to become the largest provider of prevention services in the state.

Our prevention and education teams function as the front line to the addiction battle in schools across 32 Florida counties, including many in Palm Beach County, where our educational services extend to some 120,000 Florida students.

Hanley Foundation is proud to create and implement strategies designed to support today’s youth and generations to come by building better communities and breaking the cycle of addiction.

Our History

In the early 1980s, recognizing the absence of quality treatment options—alongside a growing need for such programs in the community—Jack and Mary Jane Hanley had a vision to establish their own in the Palm Beach County area, ultimately establishing the Hanley Center and Hanley Foundation.
