Message from the Board Chair

Dear Friends,

The work of the Hanley Foundation is a very personal mission for me.

When I came upon the Hanley Foundation, as a decade-long participant and beneficiary of all things recovery, I knew nothing about the foundation’s work.

I quickly learned that Hanley Foundation is the undisputed leader in prevention programs for school children and young adults across the state of Florida. I learned that in the last few years, Hanley Foundation has provided scholarships to thousands of people so they can begin their own path to recovery. And I learned a whole lot more.

Most people, even many in the recovery community, don’t know that the foundation exists as a stand-alone leader in recovery. Or, that the Hanley Foundation is the “invisible glue” that holds prevention and recovery together.  We are about to become more visible.

The void that came from the loss of most local, healthy, and successful nonprofit treatment and recovery organizations will be filled with Hanley Foundation’s new Campus for Prevention & Recovery, now being developed in West Palm Beach. The “Restoring Hope” capital campaign is well underway. It has come together starting with 100% participation from the Hanley Foundation staff and Board of Directors.

I envision the Campus for Prevention & Recovery as the tentpole under which are the myriad of services and programs provided by us and like-minded organizations, all residing in immediate proximity. Equally as important, the campus will be a safe, supporting place for those starting the journey and those well along its path. You’ll hear more about the vision in the months to come.

Chip James
Hanley Foundation Board Chair
