About: Bruce & Erin Wilson

Our founders are Bruce & Erin Wilson the proud parents of a fun loving and overly energetic 13-year-old son Jay who has moderate to severe Autism. Jay has very limited language ability.  He has been lost at school and camp in the past.  We keep a watchful eye on him and stay close. Often we position ourselves between Jay and an exit because he can suddenly decide to bolt into danger and he is fast.  If I Need Help was created out of our concern and love for our son. Once we had a system that provided a greatly increased measure of security for him and greater peace of mind for us we decided to share this with the millions of other people in the same situation as us.

Executive Summary:

If I Need Help is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization working to reunite those who are lost, disoriented or can’t self-advocate with their loved ones and caregivers. We use QR Code Technology that can be accessed by computer or cell phone to provide help, emergency iD and peace of mind. We offer a free online member profile, and Emergency Q&A that can be edited in real time and emailed or printed in an emergency. Our customizable iD products include iD cards, & wearables such as shoe/dog tags, patches, pins/clips, & apparel.
