Possibilities are the stock-in-trade at Mosaic. 

Whether it is for the people we serve, our employees, donors, volunteers or the communities we're in, we want to make new possibilities come to life.

We're optimists at heart, believing that something good is always right around the corner. 

We also believe that our mission is a shared mission; we're in this together with the people we serve, their families, our donors and volunteers, and the communities we're in. 

It is a crowd-sourced mission!  So join in.  Be a part of Mosaic possibilities.

Tell your Senator: Vote no on cuts and caps to Medicaid.

In eight of ten states Mosaic provides services, dental work for people with intellectual disabilities is not paid by Medicaid. In seven of ten states, adaptive equipment is not paid by Medicaid. In six of the ten, electronic devices that help people communicate aren’t paid.
