The initial stages of your child’s diagnosis are a time of overwhelming change. We know an autism diagnosis can be scary, but you are not alone. Through the mentor program at Raising Harts, you will be connected with another parent who has been where you are and will guide you to valuable resources, be an ear to listen, and a shoulder to lean on. Our mission is to support parents and caregivers and empower them to advocate for their neurodivergent children from pre-diagnosis and beyond.
*Every mentor will go through an application process and be matched with a mentee based on location and background
