“We started Joshin because we believe quality caregivers should be accessible to everyone. The disability community is often overlooked and underrepresented, and we are committed to changing that. The 1-in-5 families that have a special need deserve a disability care platform that works for them. Joshin makes care easy and empowers people with disabilities to live healthy and happy lives.”

Co-Founders of Joshin
As children growing up, our big brother Josh had epilepsy and developmental disabilities. Like the 1-in-5 families across the country with special needs, we continuously struggled to find reliable care. We often jumped in and cared for Josh with pride, but knew there had to be a better solution. When our brother suddenly passed away eleven years ago, we knew the lessons he taught us and the advocacy we built could be used to solve the problems families with special needs face every day. We created Joshin to make it easier for families to find screened and qualified caregivers.
