The Disabled and Alone/Life Services for the Handicapped, Inc., a non-profit human service organization, helps families plan for the future of a loved one with a disability and, when the family is gone or incapacitated, Disabled and Alone carries out the plan. The Disabled and Alone model of service provides families with: 1) a planning journal; and 2) a personal advocate to help them complete the plan and, when appropriate, look after the disabled person (according to the family's lifetime care plan and the special needs of the person with a disability). The Disabled and Alone model has three components: 1) educational programs (about life planning for a family member with a disability) for families, professionals, and persons with disabilities; 2) planning services (using the planning journal) for families; and, 3) direct services, providing advocacy and oversight to those disabled individuals whose families have left funds for their care. The organization also provides information and referrals; holds meetings in local communities; and publishes a variety of materials, including brochures, a prospectus and a newsletter, "LifeLines."
