Making An Impact

For over 75 years, Hanna Center has served more than 4,000 youth with full-time

residential treatment. From the classroom to after-school activities, job training to volunteer work in communities across California, at Hanna our students find a safe place to heal from trauma and grow together. And while we’re incredibly proud of the young people who’ve shaped the Hanna story, we feel like after 75 years, we still have so much more to do.

In recent years, the Hanna Institute has emerged as a national leader in groundbreaking research and practice in the field of trauma-informed care. We’re stronger and more committed than ever to expanding our work, our care, and our passion — with the tools and infrastructure necessary to expand our impact across the community, and beyond.

Below, you’ll find our most recent Annual Report. In it, you’ll see how Hanna Center is working to address the broad institutional failings that have hurt so many communities. We’re committed to tackling the traumas experienced by youth, their families, and the communities we’re all part of, and we’re doing it all with innovative leadership and cutting-edge interventions.

As it has been since the beginning, Hanna is dedicated to providing the youth on our campus the tools and support they need to address trauma. Only then can they find their way toward becoming responsible, caring, and productive adults. But we recognize the trauma that ripples out beyond the youth we’ve been serving all these years — seeing how trauma cripples communities, often in invisible ways, and understanding how it affects us all. In expanding our impact, we have an incredible opportunity to bring healing to entire communities. Because when we heal a community’s trauma, we achieve a healthier future for all.
