Today, amid the nation’s largest opioid epidemic to date, the Hanley Foundation’s work is helping to thwart the crisis of tomorrow. All dollars raised by the 2018 Family Picnic will help fund prevention and education programming. Your ongoing support assures the Foundation will be able to continue its life-saving work.
The Hanley Foundation is focused on combating substance use disorders within communities throughout Florida. The core mission of Hanley Foundation focuses on providing prevention programming, access to high-quality treatment of substance use disorders, education of professionals and paraprofessionals, and advocacy surrounding the disease of addiction.
The tremendous work completed over the past year by the Hanley Foundation’s prevention and education departments was funded in part with dollars raised by the Family Picnic event. In 2016-2017 the Prevention Department provided services within Florida to 28,365 students, 255 schools and community centers, 518 parents, 616 teachers, and 17,500 citizens in 19 counties.
Hanley Foundation’s research and evidence-based approach to prevention work encourages affirmative peer support and education utilizes positive messages versus scare tactics. When the Foundation first launched its prevention programming in the year 2000, the age of first use within Palm Beach County was 10 years with 45 percent of students self-reporting that they had tried alcohol or drugs. Today, the age of first use is 14 years with less than 20 percent of students reporting they have tried alcohol or drugs. Prevention works!
Help us continue to make an impact with students throughout our state. Family time is time well spent.
