Locator Device Grant - History and Information

In 2005 Georgia Rackley came to the Autism Society Greater Harrisburg Area with a dream. Like all of us in the Autism Community, she was still trying to come to terms with the recent tragic death of Logan Mitcheltree, a 9 year old with autism who wandered away from home on a cold winter evening. Searchers were not able to find him until it was too late. Georgia wanted to raise awareness not only about Autism but about this potentially deadly aspect. That was the birth of Logan's 5KRun and Walk for Autism Awareness.

Over the years this event has grown. Not only does it continue to raise awareness, but it has served as a major fundraiser, allowing the ASGHA to provide our local autism community with many opportunities and services.

ASGHA is delighted to announce that we can now do more than just raise awareness about the dangers of elopement. Through our new Locator Device Grant, we are able to provide families with financial support in obtaining a device that will track a wandering child. Applicants must reside in one of the counties served by ASGHA (Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Mifflin, Northumberland, Perry, Snyder, Union, and York) and have medical proof of elopement risk due to an ASD.

For more information or questions regarding this grant opportunity, please contact locatordevices@autismharrisburg.com
