Mosaic in Colorado Springs

by Cheryl Wicks, Executive Director

We have been springing into action to advocate for the people we serve. In February, employees and people supported by Mosaic attended the Intellectual and Developmental Disability Awareness Day at the Capitol in Denver. We heard first-hand from Legislators on the importance of the work we do. Our team rallied together and left notes and business cards in the legislators’ offices.

Dustin Blackburn and Richard Schatz won first at Special Olympics state basketball this spring!

“I worked hard and am proud of my medal,” said Richard. 

The basketball game was difficult and went into overtime. In the end, Richard scored the winning two-pointer with a shot from the field, but he could not have done it without his teammates. Dustin plays forward on the team and goes wherever he is needed to defend his teammates.

We work very hard to maintain a culture of inclusion at Mosaic and we are always looking for new ways to improve. We are happy to announce beginning in March our entire day program staff will be trained in sign language!

Pete and Jolene Bowers took Daniel Stewart and Mark Duncan camping early this fall. Daniel and Mark have limited mobility which requires them to use wheelchairs, which can make outings like this a challenge.

Thanks to the dedication of Jolene and Pete, they made it work so the people they serve could have a real Colorado camping experience. They sat around the campfire, sang camp songs, rode three wheelers (slowly and with supervision of course), and even slept in a tent!

Jolene goes above and beyond to make Daniel feel comfortable. Daniel has been saying the ‘Our Father’ prayer before bed since he was 7 years old, but in a group home, there wasn’t always someone available to help him. Now, at the age of 42, Jolene asks him every night if he would like to say his prayer. Daniel is a spiritual person.

We have truly been blessed at Mosaic. Earlier this year, we had an initiative to focus on building partnerships with people in our community as well as the families we support. This one initiative has helped us increase and enhance the activities we offer to people we serve in our community activities program and residential program. People have attended Colorado Rockies events, visited the May Museum, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Sip-n-Splatter, Paint-n-Fire, YMCA classes (i.e. Zumba), attend Lion’s Camp and much more.

Melissa Devolve, with Little Hearts Big Music, arranged to have a recital for day program at Ascension Lutheran Church. She invited members of the church to attend as well. The kids did a great job performing and the music was lovely. All the people we serve seemed to enjoy it, and so did the staff.

One of the people with us was Michelle Alexander. Michelle is deaf and didn’t really understand what was going on. She told me she found
it boring.

In July, Couples Who Care, an up-and-coming giving circle in Colorado Springs, heard our request at their quarterly meeting to be the recipients of a gift. Thanks to the combined donations of CWC’s 30+ active members, Mosaic received $3,700 toward our day program’s winter and spring activity calendar!
