Programs: Generation Rescue’s programs and services are focused on providing support to families affected with autism; such as, grants for treatment, a forum for parents to connect and mentor each other, education and awareness, and support thorough a 24-hour hotline service.

Rescue Family Grant Program
Rescue Family Grants provide autism treatment for families who otherwise would not have access. Generation Rescue provides families a unique autism treatment program which is not funded by school districts, county programs, insurance or other grant-generating entities.

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.

Education
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.

Support
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.

Mission:
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.
Results:
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.

My son was diagnosed with PDD-NOS (Autism) in May of 2012. At that moment I didn't know how to feel or what to do, but I knew I had to do something! I didn't get any hope from his pediatrician or the neurologist that diagnosed him at the time. I just basically got a vibe from them that all hopes ... more »
