Welcome to Our Blog!

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.

Maybe Mosaic should have been named Advent.

Advent is a season of hope, a season ripe with possibilities. Mosaic has a mission of hope, bringing possibilities to life.

Hope is the promise of an assured good. It’s not a wish, or a want – it is a promise from God. The hope of Advent is the coming of a savior in glory. We anticipate that by celebrating his coming in humility as a baby.

We wait in hope.

At Mosaic, we act in hope because we see possibilities, not disabilities.

Many times I’ve witnessed direct support associates go through the same action repeatedly...Read more

A prayer for San Bernardino.The news is saturated with stories of a mass shooting yesterday at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Calif., a nonprofit that provides services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

There’s a lot we don’t know about what happened about the shooting and Mosaic does not provide services in California...Read more

When the International Day of Persons with Disabilities was approved by the United Nations in 1992, Edi was a tiny boy, one of ten siblings. At age seven, his parents took Edi and his sister from their Romanian village to an orphanage for children with intellectual disabilities. He had never gone to school and the institution offered no education. 

Education was not the only one thing sorely missing from...Read more

John at work.

Mosaic works hard to help each person we support achieve their goals. Time and time again, that goal includes finding competitive employment. 

Unfortunately, this goal can be hard to achieve.

Across the United States, less than 20 percent of people with disabilities are employed. 

One of the things that we’ve found is that small businesses and local organizations can be fantastic...Read more

  1. Direct Service Professionals.
    Time and time again Mosaic's 3,700 direct service professionals step up to the plate. Whether it's through finding creative ways to make sure that the people we serve can lead a meaningful life or completing mounds and mounds of paperwork, we know we can count on our work force because they care so deeply about the people we support.

Earlier this week I wrote about people having dreams and pursuing them.  That’s an area where Mosaic shines. 

Some people’s dreams are simply about making life better for others.  That was the dream of Mosaic’s founders.  Without going into a lot of history, today’s Mosaic is a combined ministry of two organizations that were founded at the beginning of the 20th century.

You know us as an organization that supports people with intellectual disabilities.  But our...Read more

Mosaic Possible

Mosaic has spent more than a century serving people.  It is what we do.  Our mission statement reads:

Embracing God’s call to serve in the world, Mosaic advocates for people with intellectual disabilities and provides opportunities for them to enjoy a full life. 

While Mosaic has a mission statement, it might be simpler and easier to say that we ask people about the life they want and make it happen.

What that means is different for every person...Read more
