Recognizing the urgent need to assist families with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Hope For Three was established to bridge the gap between service providers and families. Through the Family Resources program we provide resources to anyone, anywhere. However the financial component of the program, Family Assistance (financial aid) to awarded to families with children on the spectrum in Fort Bend County only. Payments are only made to an approved service provider, treatment facility or vendor and never provided directly to a parent/caregiver. The following items are required to submit and approve a family assistance request:
Family Assistance application – The application must be completed in its entirety to be reviewed. Incomplete applications will not be accepted or returned. Supporting documentation must be included.
