Our Work

Empowering Communities, Transforming Lives

For 40 years, Hanley Foundation has been a beacon of hope, positively impacting the lives of nearly a quarter of a million individuals. We’ve seen the power of evidence-based programming, and we’re committed to turning these initiatives into long-lasting community institutions. Today, we stand at the forefront of change, using our influence for prevention, advocacy, education, and treatment goals. Our mission is not only to prevent substance abuse and support recovery but also to shatter the stigma surrounding this disease.

Prevention: Empowering Future Generations

Our prevention staff is dedicated to shaping a brighter future for our communities. We deliver age-appropriate substance use disorder programs to thousands of students in schools across the state of Florida. By fostering self-confidence, positive messaging, and positive peer pressure, we equip young minds with the knowledge and resilience to make informed choices. But our efforts don’t end there. We extend our reach to parents and caregivers, providing educational presentations to strengthen the support network for our youth.

Advocacy: Uniting for Change

Hanley Foundation understands that true transformation requires collective effort. We join hands with key influencers on local, state, and national levels to shatter the stigmas associated with substance use disorders. Through advocacy, we pave the way for a more compassionate and understanding society, where individuals facing addiction find the support they need without judgment.

Education: Equipping First Responders

In the face of the opioid epidemic, Hanley Foundation stands shoulder to shoulder with medical and other professionals on the front line. Through our symposia series, we empower first responders with the tools they need to recognize early signals and symptoms of substance use disorders. With this knowledge, they can initiate life-saving action plans promptly, making a tangible difference in our communities.

Treatment and Recovery: Extending a Helping Hand

Hanley Foundation provides a lifeline for those who seek treatment but face financial barriers. We grant top-quality treatment centers in Florida and nationwide providers by offering scholarships to patients in need, including treatment at our programs at Hanley Center. With this support, we ensure that individuals have access to the care they deserve on their journey to recovery.

Our Goals: Lighting the Path to a Brighter Future

Educating and raising awareness of drug and alcohol prevention in schools and communities throughout the state.
Partnering with our community allies to promote and foster healthy lifestyles throughout Florida.
Empowering individuals and families by positively influencing attitudes, norms, and values surrounding addiction.
Contributing to the advancement of prevention research, ensuring evidence-based approaches continue to shape our efforts.
