According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, more than 20 million Americans suffer from a substance use disorder. The impact that this has on families is devastating. The Hamilton Legacy Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that aids families affected by substance abuse. We aim to promote public awareness, facilitate programs, and be an invaluable resource to families facing such afflictions, as well as the community at large.
Our mission is to end the destruction of families by substance abuse.
Our vision is a world where no family has to deal with substance abuse alone.
The Hamilton Legacy Foundation was founded in 2014 by Tiffany Hamilton, to address the issues that plague families caring for a loved one battling a substance use disorder. Having been forced to deal with substance abuse in her very own family, she experienced firsthand the devastating impact that it has on family members. Watching a loved one destroy themselves from an addiction is one of the worse pains imaginable. Families often deal with feelings of hopelessness, shame, frustration, and even guilt. Tiffany soon learned that this was an all-too-often overlooked demographic and that there existed a need for programs that supported the family members of addicted persons. It was out of these experiences that the mission to help other families dealing with substance abuse was borne.
Built on a legacy of service, the Hamilton Legacy Foundation is a haven for families caring for a loved one with a substance use disorder. We understand the complexities of addiction and how it affects the family dynamic. We equip families with the guidance, support, education, and resources that they need to keep their families strong. Likewise, we are dedicated to promoting public awareness, getting individuals the help that they need, and stopping the stigma that surrounds substance abuse.
The Hamilton Legacy Foundation was established to preserve the values of integrity, compassion, service and finally—hope.
