We are The Genesis Foundation for Children.

We fund programs and services that treat patients with a rare disease or genetic disorder from conception through adulthood.

We’re on a mission to give children and their families access to care that’s different. Families affected by a rare disease or genetic disorder diagnosis can feel lost and frustrated, while also facing budgetary roadblocks that prevent their child from receiving the coordinated care they need and deserve. Together with Mass General for Children and other specialized, targeted providers, The Genesis Foundation for Children helps thousands of families yearly obtain answers, effective diagnosis and treatment, and peace of mind.

We call this the Feingold Model of Coordinated Care.

The Feingold Model in Practice


We provide funding for The Feingold Method of care to allow doctors to give their patients the attention they deserve through spending the time needed to listen, understand, ask, and answer questions.


We support medical professionals who work collaboratively to provide unified care. We empower medical staff to work directly with insurance companies to help families with authorization for tests and therapies.


We provide funding for staff to coordinate and consolidate appointments to reduce the number of trips to see several doctors and specialists. Our families should be spending their time working and being with their loved ones.


We provide information about community resources to help families with complex issues such as educational advocacy, behavioral health services and financial or custodial planning for a child with special healthcare needs.
