Grant Recipient

Thank You WithMerci Foundation and Whitney Mercilus

Autism Rescue Angels is proud to have received a grant from the WithMerci foundation for our work with people with autism in the Houston area.


Children with autism become adults with autism. They live with it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for a lifetime. These families feel that their stories go unheard.



We hear them and we can help.

“Autism Rescue Angels truly does rescue those in need. We are a family of 5 and our children are triplets. The boys have Autism and Mitochondrial Dysfunction–both require expensive therapies, treatments, and doctor visits. We have been recipients of Autism Rescue Angels’ generosity multiple times, and we are beyond grateful for that. The financial assistance has helped us pay for tests and prescribed treatments that insurance did not cover medical bills that were piling up and even gas for our out-of-town physician specialists. They are true warriors and their dedication to helping autism families is unparalleled!  Thank you Autism Rescue Angels for your drive, dedication, and perseverance in continuing to help special families in need, it is much needed and GENUINELY appreciated! You make a difference!”
