Generation Rescue is the leading national organization that provides hope, information and immediate treatment assistance to families affected by autism spectrum disorders. We are usually the first resource families turn to when facing a diagnosis. Generation Rescue educates, supports, advocates and truly empowers families affected by autism to achieve a better quality of life today and encourages healthy choices for future generations. Our vision is to prevent future generations from being diagnosed with autism. We continue to work toward this goal.
Generation Rescue currently helps more than 25,000 families affected by autism spectrum disorders – offering programs nationwide that provide services on a local level and providing mentors in 39 countries around the world. We have a number of great ways to support families including more than 1,300 volunteer parent mentors (we call them our “Rescue Angels”), a toll-free hotline (fielding more than 5,500 calls each year) and an informative website with great tips for accessing resources (read by 25,000 people monthly). Generation Rescue also offers programming on autism treatments, a national conference, virtual and local conferences, links to helpful articles, recommended physicians, and medical grants to families who cannot afford critical treatments such as doctor visits, lab testing and nutritional counseling. We encourage families to visit www.generationrescue.org to learn about the many ways Generation Rescue can support them.

Reviews for Generation Rescue Inc
Because kids that have special needs NEED organizations like Generation Rescue to help them through their journey of life. Even greater than that, the organization provides the families with grants that can help them with strategies and treatments that could be otherwise be considered unattainable and expensive. And in the grand scheme of it all, Generation Rescue educates others through events such as the Autism Summit. I am proud to be a volunteer that has worked behind the scenes, met lifelong friends, and advocatesfor the superheroes in my life: my students and friends that are on the autism spectrum. Thank you Generation Rescue!
Generation Rescue provides what few autism organizations can...reliable resources, emotional support, and financial assistance to families who qualify. I have been a part of Generation Rescue's effort to help children and families on the spectrum since its beginning and am proud of the mission and accomplishments of this amazing organization. Not only does Generation Rescue offer hope to families and affected loved ones, it also does it in a financially and professionally responsible way. It's an honor to be a part of this incredible group.
I have been volunteering and raising money for Generation Rescue for 9 years now. The assistance and support Generation Rescue gives families is tremendous!! So many families are lost when their child is diagnosed and GR helps them every step of the way! Many families wouldn't be able to afford the necessary assistance for their child if it wasn't for GR! They are literally changing lives with their dedication! I am HONORED to help every year!!
I have volunteered for Generation Rescue for 9 years now. We also hold a yearly event in Branson, Mo where all monies raised go to Generation Rescue!! So many families in my area have been able to do the bio medical grants provided by GR & their kids are doing amazing and are on their road to recovery. We support Generation Rescue because we know where the money we raise goes!! I love volunteering for all their events!! Meeting the families that their child has recovered from autism is the most rewarding feeling ever!!
I have been a volunteer for Generation Rescue for 6 years. This is the best foundation I have ever volunteered for. I have also been amazed watching kids recover with the bio medical grants. AMAZING FOUNDATION!!!
Generation Rescue is so amazing. My god daughter is autistic & Generation Rescue was the only website we found that was so eager to help parents with newly diagnosed children with Autism. I have seen first hand how much the bio-medical grant program works that I do an annual autism event in my community to help spread the word about Generation Rescue's bio-medical grant program. We have had 3 families in my community who have done the bio medical grant with amazing results. My husband and I donate to several diferrent organizations & foundations & Generation Rescue is by far our favorite one. I have never seen a foundation happily work so hard for families, the continuous follow ups, email & phone calls Generation Rescue does is absolutely amazing! The biggest thing for us as well is even when a family is done with their bio-medical grant-Generation Rescue's staff still continues to keep in touch with them and helps the family anytime there is need. , they don't forget about them. Generation Rescue is #1 in my book!!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
1. Vaccines don't cause Autism-that myth has been repeatedly debunked.
2. Why do we have to "rescue" people with autism. They aren't sick. Their brains work different. People with Autism are wonderful and unique in their own ways. Using interventions and ABA strategies can help them lead a more "normal" life, but they don't need rescuing or fixing. That's just offensive to every person living with Autism.
Words cannot express the full magnitude of my love for this organization! We came to know Generation Rescue when my son was first diagnosed I checked out their website and received a lot of great information on getting help we needed. I attended their conference in Dallas and that's where our lives were changed forever. We were a Rescue Grant Recipient and it was the miracle I had prayed for. My son was non-verbal and in less than 2 weeks with help from the grant my son said his first words! A year and a half now after our grant ended I have a happy, healthier, very talkative little boy. We have a way to go still but we continue to receive amazing support from Generation Rescue. They truly care about helping families with Autism directly! They have given us a lifetime of hope and love when families like ours need it the most. I cannot recommend them highly enough and am forever indebted to this organization for bringing my beautiful son out of the shadows and for giving me the tools to continue our journey into healing.

The most caring, passionate and hard-working team out there!
My family has been Donors/Supporters/Volunteers for GR for a number of years thanks to 2 amazing friends who became WARRIORS to educate each of us. We are comfortable donating to GR because we have witnessed the guidance/education and support given to local families. We believe in RECOVERY!
My son was not formally diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum until he was almost
21. However he was diagnosed with an intellectual disability, development delays and motor delays
before he was 9 months old. Through Generation Rescue we have seen many improvements in our
son's symptoms. Chief among the changes we made were in his diet
Gluten and Casein Free, supplements and the addition of specific medications to
reduce stress and inflammation. We also were referred to
doctors who specialize in Autism and neurological disorders.
Our son has made great strides in his confidence and ability in coping with sensory overload.
Generation Rescue truly cares about helping Autistic individuals lead the best life possible. They are a top-notch organization. I highly recommend GR to those looking for help dealing with Autism.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
My daughter was diagnosed with Autism at 18 months. My wife and her best friend spent 48 hours straight trying to find the best organization to get involved with to not only help our daughter, but also use as a resource for additional help and guidance. They came across Generation Rescue and have never looked back. Whether through the amazing grant program that got our daughter on the road to recovery or the attention to detail that this organization gives to their clients, there is no substitute! We don't know what we would have done without GR!
