“Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel, shall come to you, O Israel!”

“I get more than I give.”  

I could not count the number of times I’ve heard that from direct support workers at Mosaic.  They are the front line, the face of Mosaic, serving people in 10 states across the country.

“I get more than I give.”  

For those of us in churches that follow a calendar of church seasons, we’re in Advent.  It is a season of hope, a season of anticipation, a season of...Read more

Dream Big

What’s the last thing you think of before you fall asleep?

For the last 15 years, Dawn's last thought has been Jason.

Dawn and Jason met at a Mosaic-run day center. “He thought that I was pretty,” Dawn says with a smile.

It wasn't long before the couple started dreaming about what a life together would look like. 

After a few years of dating, Dawn moved closer to Jason so they could learn more about what they wanted together....Read more

It is easy to be grateful when things go your way, when you hit success, when you win. It's different when you hit roadblocks, when you fail, when you lose. This Thanksgiving, I'm saying thanks for both.Read more

Donald Grundahl smiels at the camera.

In Mosaic’s month of gratitude, we are thankful for the many donors who have generously supported the mssion.  This story originally appeared in Mosaic’s magazine seven years ago.  I was able to meet Donald Grundahl once before he died and, even weak and approaching death, he was kind in word and ready to laugh.

Celebrating One Year: mosaicpossible.org

One of the things our President and CEO Linda Timmons often says is that Mosaic is a good news story in a bad news world.  At Mosaic we believe that our success is in our stories: the stories of the people we serve and those who love and support them.

Over the last year, we’ve shared a lot of good news. Stories about people like Jim and Scott, a host home provider and person in service...Read more

Carolyn Doughty always knew that her son DJ would push the limits. 

“He’s always been a go-getter,” she said. 

But when you live in a high-crime, big-city neighborhood where your son is threatened with violence and taken advantage of because of his disability, your fears for his health and safety rise to a different level. 

DJ struggled as a child in Chicago but always found his way. He graduated from high school and...Read more
