Joshua’s Path: Plan for Life

What will happen to my special needs adult child when I am no longer able to care for him or her?

What parent of a disabled child has not asked that very question? Parents, siblings or other family caregivers of disabled adults are seeking assistance with finding appropriate community resources and providers who will address the unique needs of their loved one. They are most in need of guidance with planning for their disabled loved one’s future. Joshua’s Path was created by the Jewish Federation of Broward County and Goodman Jewish Family Services of Broward to provide information, support and advocacy in the life planning process for adult children with disabilities.

Joshua’s Path is here to provide you with referrals that will help you put in place the necessary supports and arrangements for when you are no longer able to provide care. We will guide you to the appropriate providers and resources in the community that best fit your loved one’s needs – be they funded services, financial or legal arrangements, residential options, vocational assistance or social/recreational needs.

Joshua’s Path is a FREE service open to any family member residing in Broward County who is a caregiver to an adult with a developmental, physical or mental health disability.
