Rescue Family Grant Program

Parent Mentor Program
Generation Rescue’s “Rescue Angels” are parents of children with an autism spectrum disorder who have seen significant improvement or loss of diagnosis through the use of novel therapies. “Rescue Angels" volunteer their time to answer questions, give guidance, and provide referrals to local resources for families starting on their journey.
Generation Rescue is a proud partner of AutismOne the largest US autism conference encompassing novel therapies, behavioral therapies, family advocacy, and physician and first responder training.
Generation Rescue’s hotline is a resource and referral service, answering questions, addressing concerns, sending additional information and providing hope for recovery to families in need. Families can call (877) 98-AUTISM 24 hours a day.
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.
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.
