TAKE ME HOME Program: Do you have a family member who has difficulty speaking? Perhaps a loved one with Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism or Down syndrome? The Take Me Home program of Fulton County may be for you! The program consists of a database of individuals who may have trouble communicating their name and where they live. In the event a person is lost or separated from their loved ones, a search of the database is made so the lost individual’s contact information may be found and loved ones contacted. The Take Me Home database contains a photo, identifying characteristics and contact information. It is a valuable tool for law enforcement agencies as well as families and caregivers. Registration is free and simple. The Take Me Home program is sponsored by Fulton County Prosecutor Scott Haselman, Sheriff Roy Miller and the Fulton County Board of Developmental Disabilities. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Prosecutor’s office at 419-337-9240; or the Sheriff’s office at 419-335-4010; or the Board of DD at 419-337-4575.
