Antoine Rouse presents Project Lifesaver to Court

2012-11-14 - Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Antoine Rouse, Speaking Through Silence left presented the outline of Project Lifesaver, a GPS monitoring system designed to rescue persons with autism or Alzheimer's who may wander off. They received an enthusiastic reception at the Adair Fiscal Court. Speaking Through Silence, an innovative Autism support and awareness program started in Columbia by Greg Blair, right and Rouse, has set out to raise $4,200 to set up the program; an ankle bracelet for each person needing the service costs $250. Speaking through Silence is raising funds through fundraisers and expects to have half the needed money on its own, but is asking government assistance from Adair County Fiscal Court and the City of Columbia. Once the project is set up, Speaking Through Silence hopes to add two bracelets a month until all of Adair County's autistic children and Alzheimer's patients have the protection. Rouse told the court that autism occurs, to a greater or lesser degree, in as many as 1 in 88 children.
