Joshua Shusterman wants the same thing most recent college graduates seek: a good job, independence from his parents and a meaningful romantic relationship.
Finding all of those things can be a tall order for any 23-year-old. But Shusterman, who grew up in Merion Station, knows that he faces additional challenges because of his cerebral palsy. The condition affects Shusterman’s body movement and peripheral vision; it also sometimes causes seizures.
Shusterman is trying to turn his goals into realities with the help of the Philadelphia Independence Network (PIN). Learn more about the PIN program and how it helps members like Joshua achieve independence in the Jewish Exponent.
