National Autism Association's 'FOUND' Provides Funds to Union County Sheriff's Office for Project Lifesaver Equipment
Date:9/16/2008

UNION COUNTY, Pa., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Autism Association announced today that Union County, Pennsylvania, is one of the first recipients of Project Lifesaver funding through the organization's FOUND Program. FOUND was developed to counter the rise in wandering-related deaths among children with autism.

Project Lifesaver is a nationwide tracking program established to quickly locate and rescue missing persons, specifically those with cognitive impairments and developmental disabilities. The program has a 100% recovery rate.

"I'm really proud that we got it and can't wait to get out to help people when they need it," Deputy Sheriff Ernie Delp told The Daily Item. "... It takes a lot of people, a lot of work. You are basically blindly looking for a person. With this, you pick up the signal and find them within minutes."

At its inception, FOUND had only enough funding for eight counties across the US. With a recent anonymous donation, two more counties were added. All ten counties have been chosen based on need. Union County is the first of the ten.

Fundraising tools were also established by NAA for communities that wish to raise funds in their own counties for Project Lifesaver. To download these tools, visit http://www.nationalautismassociation.org/found.php.

The FOUND Program relies heavily on donations. Donors have a choice to adopt an entire county for $6800 or a partial county for any given amount by visiting http://www.nationalautism.org.
