Take Me Home Program

Helping at-risk San Diegans get home safely.

Getting lost is scary and can be dangerous. Especially for someone living with dementia, autism, or other developmental disabilities. Ask yourself: Could your loved one communicate their name and address if they were lost? If the answer is no, or may change at some point, consider enrolling in the Take Me Home program. The Take Me Home program is a safety net for the future, so you can have peace of mind today. This information is confidential, and can only be accessed by law enforcement in an emergency. You can sign your loved one up for the Take Me Home program by contacting your local Crime Prevention Specialist, or by clicking the blue registration button above.
