Western Iowa

about us

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 in Western Iowa has been providing services since 1989. The agency's first home was built in Logan in 1989. In 1992, Mosaic purchased two existing homes in Logan and began providing services to more individuals with special needs. In 1993, the agency built two six-person Intermediate Care Facilities in Denison. In 2002, the agency assumed operations of the Pottawattamie County Care Facility and has since expanded services in Council Bluffs to provide Supported Community Living services on an intermittent basis to persons living in the community.

Mosaic in Western Iowa receives Delta Dental Grant

Jamie Thomsen, daughter of Associate Director Mary Arndt, is currently in the Dental Hygiene program at Iowa Central Community College and recently submitted a grant proposal for a community service project, with Mosaic being the recipient of the funds. She received $3,500 for their project entitled "Marvelous Mouths for Mosaic". Jamie and her partner Bailey came to the Mosaic group homes and did a dental in-service, teaching the clients about oral hygiene, as well as providing oral health assessments on each person receiving services. They also provided each person with an electric toothbrush and held a pizza party to celebrate. From all of us at Mosaic in Western Iowa, a huge thanks goes to Jamie for obtaining the grant, and her and Bailey for providing dental services!
