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.

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!

I was introduced to Generation Rescue thru a friend who volunteers for them. The GR team has such great compassion for what they do and no question is to little to silly for them to answer. They do amazing things for communities and families thru their foundation and helping change the lives of some many!

I have sponsored as well as volunteerd for Generation Rescue. Their program has helped out so many children's lives in our community along with many other places. They are truly making sure donations go to the children. There are so many non for profits out there and I chose Generation Rescue as mine. I have seen first hand how they help families with autism. Their resources available to parents is amazing. They are there every step of the way working with families towards recovery.

I have helped with Rock the Spectrum every year, and I was one of the first grant families in Taney County. I have had support since I got involved. This is a great organization that loves to spread awareness and help families!

I have been a supporter of this amazing cause for a number of years. It is very important to me that the money raised at the local events stays here locally to help the families of the children in need. Generation Rescue helps educate the public and raise awareness of the alarming increase of autism in children. They offer solutions, guidance and help to the parents. I feel honored to help this wonderful organization.

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!!

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

Alarmed by the rise in both diagnosis of autism and the need for more engagement/action, my wife and I sought an organization bringing fresh ideas to the forefront of education and treatment. We found this in Generation Rescue. They continually push the envelope for research, treatment, grant provision, education and are a very impressive charity. We're happy to donate our money, time and resources to their cause.

We have been supporting GR for over 5 years. My wife and I have a beautiful Niece who was diagnosed over 8 years ago. With the help of GR and others she is on the road of a healthy recovery. I can't say enough good things about the staff and particularly Candace McDonald, Executive Director. Their professionalism, caring hearts and love of children and families is amazing. They Truly help those families in need to get the treatments that insurance doesn't cover. I consider it an honor and privilege to be associated with them and urge others to support these families in anyway they can
