Thanks to the support of exceptional organizations, we are able to provide prevention and education programming to an expanding number of schools, churches, and community groups in 15 Florida counties. Our team of nearly 30 Prevention Specialists can continue educating communities across the state about substance abuse prevention.
In 2016, Hanley Foundation provided nearly $1 million in prevention and education services in Florida, impacting the lives of nearly 30,000 students, parents, and caregivers. Going forward, our expanded mission of providing lifesaving access to treatment for individuals who might not otherwise be able to afford it as well as leading the way in advocacy efforts on the local, state and national levels will also continue.
In the past two years, our service outreach has increased by expanding from seven to fifteen counties.
