The Richard (Stretch) McGrath Grant
This grant is funded through THE TRUMBULL COUNTY COMMISSIONERS and matching amounts from The Mikeyfied Fund For Adult Autism Autism http://www.commissioners.co.trumbull.oh.us/
Richard McGrath was a deputy sheriff for The Trumbull County Sheriff’s Department. Richard, also known as ‘stretch’ because of his height, was an advocate for autism awareness. He was also a very big supporter of The Mikeyfied Fund and it’s purpose. Unfortunately, Richard passed away and those of us at Mikeyfied as well as so many others were affected by this loss. Therefore, it is our pleasure to implement a grant for respite services toward parents of autistic children or adult autistic children. We named this grant… “The Richard (Stretch) McGrath grant.
