We can Change everything together

When a community gets together to make a difference, it can change just about everything. Join us in our mission.


The impact of HANAC’s services extends far beyond the 30,000 clients we serve annually. Each contact affects not only the life of the program participant but their family, friends, colleagues and co-workers.

The caregiver who is relieved, for a brief period of time from caretaking responsibilities, is a better spouse and parent by being given an opportunity to attend to other obligations or to enjoy free time.

The senior citizen who attends a senior center benefits from exercise, nutrition, socialization and the independence inherent in leading a full life. With increased independence these seniors are less dependent upon their own children for care and support thus freeing these younger adults to care for their families and be more productive at work.

Our Beacon Program and our after-school and summer youth programs support the growth of their young participants while enabling parents to attend to employment responsibilities knowing their children are safe. The employer benefits when the worker isn’t stressed by child safety concerns.

The individuals who seek help through our substance abuse prevention and treatment services and begin to change behavior patterns produce a ripple effect that brings positive change to families, friends and co-workers alike.

These examples merely touch the surface in illustrating the positive impact of HANAC’s programs and services on the lives of participants and their community.
