Mary Lou’s life was one of “firsts.” She was one of the first people with a disability to graduate from the local public high school. She was one of the first to move into community services and then into her own apartment later in her life. She was the first person supported by Mosaic to become a member of the board. The list went on.
July 1 marks 18 years since Mosaic was formed by the coming together of two Nebraska-based organizations—Bethphage and Martin Luther Homes.

The summer 2021 issue of Mosaic’s premiere, national magazine, Promise, is now online and ready to read.

John, Michael, Marylynn and Theresa Giguere eventually transitioned to a permanent residency at Mosaic’s Banbury home. The sisters happily share a room as do their brothers. Although they miss their mother and brother, they are very happy with Mosaic and love their new home.
April is National Autism Awareness Month.
