I don’t know how to express my gratitude for such a great financial assistance you are providing me at this time of turbulence I am going through.  May the Lord keep sending blessings to you all in the organization.

Thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart. I am in tears and so grateful! I will call the water company to let them know and get a longer extension until they receive the check. When I am back on my feet I promise I will donate to your company. I truly appreciate you and this organization.

I was at the food distribution day and it was good… It is a great gesture and heartwarming. And reaching out to someone in need is a great deed on your part. It is not going unnoticed.

Again God bless you and have a wonderful weekend.

A client has been depressed since her mother died a few years ago. Although she has friends in the building, she isolates herself and will stay home, nap, and watch TV.  Since she had Active@Home installed, a change has occurred. She excitedly told her care manager that she has a new best friend, the instructor of the yoga/exercise program she participates in. She loves the personal attention and support she receives and feels that the instructor really cares about her and has gotten to know her. This is the best thing that has happened to her in some time. She is now socializing on a regular basis and is no longer feeling isolated.

A father called Joshua’s Path looking for resources for his adult son with a developmental disability. The family recently relocated from New York and needed help and guidance in navigating the system. The Joshua’s Path team provided a consultation with the family in order to gain a better understanding of their needs, and they also learned that the family was food insecure due to their fixed income. They were immediately connected to The Dorit and Ben J. Genet Cupboard, where they are now able to not only access food, but maintain their Kosher diet. The family was also connected to Vocational Rehabilitation, where the son was approved for employment services. Additionally, we connected the family to the David Posnack JCC’s Giborim program for adults with disabilities for social and recreational programs. We also provided them with the schedule of our upcoming educational seminars, and the BCJAA website to use as an additional resource. We look forward to continuing to serve this family’s needs to assist them in a successful transition to their new life in Broward County.
