What do we fund?
Autism Rescue Angels currently provides funding for families struggling to cover costs associated with diagnosis and evaluations, therapies, respite care, medication and emergency medical needs.
Our goal is to someday support tuition in the form of scholarships. Currently we are unable to grant tuition assistance.
Who do we fund?
Autism Rescue Angels funds families with financial hardships due to the fact they have a loved one with an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis, or a suspected ASD diagnosis.
How do we decide?
If your family has an ASD diagnosis or is seeking diagnosis you are a candidate. We take applications in the order received. Financial need is not based on an income minimum or maximum but is considered on a case by case basis. Specific parameters have been defined by the Autism Rescue Angels Board of Directors.
How often do we distribute funds?
Due to the high volume of applications, Autism Rescue Angels is changing the application acceptance period to twice a year. We will start accepting applications after January 1, 2017, for disbursement in April 2017. Any applications received after September 1, 2016, will not be considered for disbursement until the next cycle. We consider applications in the order they come in. If you have submitted an application, we will let you know we received it as soon as possible. Distribution for the current cycle will occur in October/November 2016. Our goal is to distribute funds thoughtfully and carefully to the families that we know are in need and waiting.
When can I expect to hear back?
We are experiencing a high volume of applications, and the wait time for funding has been extended. We will then review to determine if parameters have been met. If you qualify as a candidate for funds we will put you on the wait list for funding. Timing is dependent on donations. We will will notify you when funds become available to cover your request for assistance. We are continuously working to bring in donations.
