Our Miles of Smiles Mari

Welcome to The Mari Hall Family Foundation, Inc !

Do you know a child or loved one with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)?  Chances are you do.  According to the latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, one in every 88 children will be diagnosed with ASD.  That means over one million children in the United States have ASD.


The Mari Hall Family Foundation was created to promote awareness and make a difference in the lives of those individuals living with ASD.  As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the foundation seeks to raise funds to assist in the provision of local early intervention services and programs.  Additionally, the foundation awards an annual scholarship to a graduating high school senior who has best contributed to the welfare of his or her special needs peers and plans to pursue a career in special education.
