Hannah Hackworth

Executive Director

Hannah is a social entrepreneur who is passionate about rethinking what is possible when it comes to accessing mental healthcare and building a community where people know in their hearts it is okay to ask for help. 

For the last 20 years she has worked as a social worker and leader, to find innovative ways, through community collaboration, to address the social and behavioral health needs of vulnerable populations in our community.  She has had the opportunity to see the healthcare system through the eyes of the people she has had the privilege of caring for and believes we, together as a community, can create an effective way to identify and connect with people who are feeling hopeless and their families. 

Her experience includes inpatient behavioral health, community behavioral health, substance abuse, mental health and aging, integration of primary care and behavioral health, geriatric care coordination, and addressing the social determinants of health.  She completed a Master of Social Work at UCF in 2002 and Master of Business Administration from Jacksonville University in 2017.  She has been the recipient of awards for innovation in mental healthcare delivery and was selected by her Northeast Florida peers as 2010 Social Worker of the Year.

Hannah and her husband have three children, ages 6, 12, and 14.  She enjoys attending volleyball and basketball tournaments, spending quality time with family and friends, running, swimming and relaxing with a good book by the pool.

You can transform lives.

Help us support the community that needs us most.
