Alan’s Hope was formed in 2011 as a subcommittee of the Williamson County Behavioral Health Task Force focused on suicide prevention. The committee was named in memory of Round Rock resident Alan Carter Villaruz-Curley who was a victim of suicide in 2010. Alan’s Hope is dedicated to preventing suicides by promoting hope, awareness and support in Williamson County communities.
