WHAT WE DO: Through our Hanna4Hope workshops and assemblies we are able to bring awareness and form leaders within schools, organizations, community groups, clubs and churches. We encourage our parents and community to attend our educational workshops or assemblies with the teens. Our objectives for all ages that include:
• Talking ‘Real’ with Teens. Real questions... Real Answers... (Teen Interaction Workshop)
• Developing a Community of Support: Resourcing Together to Keep People Safe
• Having Hard Conversations About Teen Suicide
WHO ARE WE: Hanna4Hope, Inc. is a nonprofit foundation that brings teenage suicide — one of the leading causes of death among today’s youth — to the forefront of communities. Through educational workshops, school assemblies, charitable donations, fundraisers and other community-based events, Hanna4Hope endeavors to reduce the devastating effects of suicide on our youth, their families and friends.
Our Mission: The Hanna4Hope Foundation educates families and community leaders about the signs of suicide and provides a variety of resources for teens, parents and community organizations.
Our world moves so fast that our youth neither understand nor have the tools necessary to cope with today’s ongoing challenges. Too many times, they think there is no way out except, ending their lives.
“Thank you so much for sharing your story and bringing Hanna4Hope to Fowler yesterday. We actually loved the variety in the assembly, having Raina and Brandi share personal stories, the video that empowered students to realize they can help and be a resource that can make a difference, the medical/psychological facts and information provided by Children’s Health and of course, getting students involved at the end.”
Kristin, Frisco ISD
“I really appreciate you and the Hanna4Hope foundation. The presentation was the best I've ever experienced in my 20 years as an educator. You got the attention of middle school students, who actually sat and listen to the information. Thanks for sharing your story and delivering an age appropriate message. I will see you in a couple of years because this message has to reach as many of our students as possible.
As for your program and presentation, I would not change a thing. The engagement with the student's not just the interactive part but the message was awesome. Thank you for the opportunity.”
