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.

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

This was posted a few months ago on Facebook by Blake West, a Direct Support Associate at Mosaic in Northern Colorado.  The person supported had been with Mosaic for many years and was moving to be with family in another state.  With Blake’s permission, it is shared here.

“So tonight is one of the most bittersweet moments in my life.... A client who I have served for about 5 years on and off is moving to a different state and it has me in tears because...Read more

When he founded Mosaic (as Bethphage Mission) in 1913, the Rev. K.G. William Dahl probably could not have imagined travel into space – air flight itself was less than a decade old.  But more than a century later, two items associated with Mosaic’s history will spend six months on the International Space Station, taken...Read more

Michelle BroadyWhen Michelle Broady moved into her new home on our campus in Beatrice, Neb., it was a homecoming of sorts. Although the home is new to her, Mosaic and its legacy, Martin Luther Home, is not. Michelle was the star of a 1996 fundraising brochure and article in the Martin Luther Home News.

Michelle was born in 1994. Her mother Lori, a special education teacher, worked with Martin Luther Homes in Beatrice to create an Early...Read more
