Family Assistance

Family Assistance or Quick Assist Applications

Through the Family Assistance and Resources programs, we provide financial aid to qualified families with children on the autism spectrum residing in Fort Bend County, Texas, and resources and referrals to anyone, anywhere, regardless of location.

Preference is given to families with multiples, or multiple children on the spectrum when funding is considered. Payments are paid directly to approved professionals, such as, but not limited to service providers, treatment facilities, diagnosticians, or vendors, and never to a parent or caregiver.

In need of resources, or referrals? Visit the website Resources tab for valuable information.

A Board comprised Family Assistance Committee determines the amount of assistance based on the availability of funds, and recipients are notified via e-mail, or telephone, by a member of the Hope For Three Family Assistance department.
