Mosaic provides a life of possibilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities. We help people define their own happiness. We support them and empower the pursuit of their goals. We celebrate their successes, even if that success is as simple as the pursuit itself.
Mosaic is a consolidated service organization made up of two legacy agencies, Bethphage and Martin Luther Homes. Mosaic has been providing services to adults with disabilities in the Des Moines area since 1983. It was in 1983 that Bethphage opened three homes serving 24 people. In 1994, Martin Luther Homes opened 9 homes to serve 36 people. In July of 2003, the two legacy agencies came together to form one premier organization, Mosaic.
Mosaic in Des Moines now serves more than 180 adults in more than 50 locations and employs 330 staff members. People served by Mosaic receive benefits in a variety of ways including 24-hour residential living, intermittent supports and employment opportunities.
Mosaic in Des Moines is accredited with the Council on Quality and Leadership.

Join Mosaic for a night of fun and release your inner artist!

Paint for a purpose with us on Thursday, March 20 at 6 p.m.
For every painter, $10 of the total fee will come back to Mosaic and help fill the financial gap to allow people we support the opportunities to pursue their dreams and desires and lead full lives.
Make a unique masterpiece and make a difference in the lives of adults with intellectual disabilities in your community! You don't need to be a professional or have any painting experience; have fun in a relaxed atmosphere and watch your painting come to life with easy to follow directions.

Throughout our Centennial year in 2013, Mosaic in Des Moines set a goal to achieve 100 group volunteers to share their time with us. Not only did we reach that goal, we had 267 group volunteers through the doors at Mosaic! We are honored to have this many people choose to spend their time with us, and are excited about what these partnerships mean for us in the future.
