Dear Parent or Guardian,

Emergo’s team works very hard to make respite care accessible to all families living with an autistic person or with pervasive developmental disorder.
Each year, Emergo receives donations and grants to facilitate access to its services. We redistribute these funds in the form of partial or total financial assistance to low-income families, according to the funds available and the number of applications.
To qualify for financial aid, you must:

In addition to the family income, other criteria are taken into consideration, namely:

  • family status;
  • the number of children or dependents;
  • the number of children with special needs;
  • other sources of financial support.
