As December comes to a close, we wanted to wish a Happy New Year to all our friends, family and supporters.
We are grateful as we reflect on another year filled with growth and continued advocacy to ensure that more people know about Miles and the work being done towards preventing another tragic death.
THANK YOU for helping us ensure that there are compassionate responses to mental health calls for assistance that don't involve the police.
We recently had the opportunity to visit The Miles Hall Crisis Center at its temporary facility in Martinez to experience the services offered to those who call for assistance in Contra Costa County.
Over the past few months, they have significantly increased staffing and now offer support 24 hours a day 7 days a week with additional resources coming soon. It was great to meet the wonderful people who provide the compassionate support for callers.
This time of year can be difficult for many people, and we want to remind you to practice self-care and take the time to utilize the tools and resources available if needed.
One of the missions of the foundation is to provide resources to families like ours who have been affected by police violence. This time of year can be challenging for everyone experiencing a loss of a loved one, but especially so for impacted families.
That is why again this holiday season, our foundation gave funds to organizations and families in need of assistance, and families doing work in their communities to help others. We wanted to make sure you know that your support of The Miles Hall Foundation allows us to support so many others through the year.
To learn more about two of the family organizations we supported this year and get an update on other projects in 2023 and 2024m see the replay of our "Going The Extra Miles" community update.
Miles' death continues to create change, making a positive impact on our community with each passing year. We know he is in heaven guiding us to help create safer, more compassionate, and equitable communities for all.
Miles is missed each and every day and we wish he was with us. But we know that he continues to touch us all through this work.
Our family wishes you all a very Happy New Year and thank you again for all your support this past year -- we can't do this work without you.
Love, Taun, Scott and Alexis Hall
