April is Autism Awareness Month. Matt Simpson and James Gardner, two gentlemen served by Mosaic, speak about their diagnosis of autism and the importance of understanding.
In many locations, the people Mosaic supports enjoy participating in their communities as volunteers. Here are a few of their stories.
James Kences, supported by Living Innovations, serves as York, Maine’s unofficial historian and is a vocally strong York historic preservationist. But he wasn’t always that way. His case manager said 10 years ago when she met James, he trusted few people and barely stepped foot out of his home.
Nikki Luckey lives life in her own unique and bold way. Ten years ago, she chose her Mosaic at Home provider based on a potato and a song.
Braden Tuffin is a typical 19-year-old teenager who loves to skateboard, build and refurbish skateboards, and wear skateboard clothes. With Mosaic at Home, Braden and his family found the independence and increased one-on-one attention he needed.
People say on the third strike you’re out. But that’s not true with Mosaic on your side. When Aaron Mickle faced what looked like it would be a third strike, Mosaic helped him instead turn it into a literal home run.
Jordan Ingram lives life on his terms these days, boldly defying limitations that were placed on him in the past and learning to do more and more for himself.
David was always focused on caring for and helping others, and he put himself last. When he decided to ask for more help, Mosaic was ready to assist. Today, David is getting out more, and he was even chosen for Kansas Interhab’s “Outstanding Personal Growth Award.”
As Becky’s requirements changed, Mosaic carried out its due diligence to find someone who had the experience to help Becky with her needs—someone who would be a good fit. Betty and Becky “clicked” right away.
