Welcome to Our Blog!

Possibilities are the stock-in-trade at Mosaic. 

Whether it is for the people we serve, our employees, donors, volunteers or the communities we're in, we want to make new possibilities come to life.

We're optimists at heart, believing that something good is always right around the corner. 

We also believe that our mission is a shared mission; we're in this together with the people we serve, their families, our donors and volunteers, and the communities we're in. 

It is a crowd-sourced mission!  So join in.  Be a part of Mosaic possibilities.


 

In the weeks and months to come, we urge Congress to reject any legislation seeking to cut Medicaid and put people with disabilities and other Americans at risk.

Earlier this week, President Trump released his first budget plan, proposing drastic cuts to services millions of Americans with disabilities and their families rely on each and every day.

The budget would cut Medicaid by up to $600 billion over 10 years, on top of the $800 billion in cuts proposed by the American Health Care Act (AHCA)....Read more

Advocacy is important. Even if your side loses, it still matters.

Last week, I spent time with other advocates at Nebraska’s state capitol, working to override the governor’s veto of valuable funding for people with...Read more

Partners in Possibilities

Mosaic is finishing up its spring season of fundraising, events called Partners in Possibilities. They’re breakfast meetings and luncheons that share our mission and feature a local speaker sharing how Mosaic changed their life.

It’s especially personal for Pastor Nick Carlson, who’s been a donor and volunteer at Mosaic in Pontiac for the last two years. Below are his comments from one of these events.

“Learning about Mosaic in Pontiac gave me a new look...Read more

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mother’s Day!

When we hear the word mother, each of us probably has a unique conception of what that means—nurture, laughter, care, education, healing, shelter, joy, protection, love and more.

My career at Mosaic has helped me to see another side of mothering: advocate. I have two children and throughout their lives I have always done everything I could to ensure they’re treated fairly and respectfully in all areas: education, healthcare,...Read more

When Health Coordinator, Godson Mmary, learned that 75 percent of the children served by Building a Caring Community (BCC) had worm in infections, he took action. Read more

Levina and the boys celebrate after complete their race.

In February, a team of 20 from Mosaic’s partner, Building a Caring Community, participated in the Kilimanjaro Marathon 5K Fun Run. The Kilimanjaro Marathon draws 9,000 runners of 40 nationalities to Moshi, Tanzania to run together in the shadow of the tallest mountain in Africa. It is a great opportunity for the children and young adults of BCC to run and socialize...Read more

Earlier today members of the House of Representatives voted to pass the American Health Care Act. If passed by the Senate, this bill could have devastating consequences for millions of people with intellectual disabilities and other vulnerable people.

We are incredibly disappointed with the vote, but know our advocacy must continue.

This bill cuts more than $800 billion dollars from Medicaid, removes guarantees that people who need support will get it and jeopardizes the health and safety of millions of people in the United States.

We’re incredibly...Read more

Family and Friends Day has a long tradition at Mosaic at Bethphage Village in Axtell, harkening back to the time when many family members lived far away – often out of state – from their loved one who was a resident at Bethphage.

The day is dedicated to enjoying activities with family members, friends, volunteers and donors who support Mosaic.

The annual event has taken on many different faces.

There have been circuses, football games, fishing contests...Read more

Jeff Dahms

What started as simply volunteering for Jeff Dahms has become much more.  He has gained friends—and become a friend—by offering his time playing guitar with a couple of guys Mosaic serves.

“We get together every couple of weeks and play songs and write our own music and lyrics,” Jeff said. “It has been a really fun time.”

 

Jeff and his wife both have cousins with developmental disabilities that they were close to growing...Read more

Warm, delicious, homemade cinnamon rolls. The anticipation. The smell. The taste. 

Mmmmmm. 

This week is a good opportunity to share just a few of the things people served by Mosaic do for others, such as serving homemade cinnamon rolls.  That’s what Daniel does as part of Mosaic Thank You Sunday for churches in the Des Moines, Iowa, who have provided Christmas gifts for people served by Mosaic.

He bakes them with his...Read more
