Empowering Educators for a Healthier Tomorrow

Educators play a crucial role in creating and supporting healthy, addiction-free communities. Our prevention programs equip educators with the knowledge and tools needed to make a lasting impact. We proudly serve 32 counties in Florida, providing key prevention resources for educators throughout the state. In 2022, we provided over $7.15 million in prevention and education services, reaching some 75,000 students, parents, and caregivers.

Evidence-Based Programs for Lasting Impact

Our programs are based on extensive research and proven efficacy in preventing and delaying alcohol and drug use among middle and high school-aged students. Delivered in collaboration with our compassionate community partners, these comprehensive evidence-based programs use positive messages that encourage students to make confident, informed decisions throughout their lives.

Investing in Underserved Communities

The Hanley Foundation is dedicated to providing free programming in underserved areas, delivering key educational services to reach our communities’ most vulnerable populations. By providing prevention programs and ongoing support, Hanley Foundation helps reduce disparities in healthcare related to substance abuse, broadening the impact of its mission, and contributing to safer, healthier communities throughout our state.

Programs Tailored for Empowerment

Our prevention staff offers a range of substance abuse prevention programs, all approved by the National Registry of Evidence-based Prevention Programs and Practices (NREPP). These programs are tailored to be age-appropriate, gender-specific when necessary, and available in multiple languages to ensure inclusivity. By fostering open conversations and using positive messages, we engage students, parents, and adults in the community.
