Impact Report 2022: Mosaic Grows
Behavioral Technologies, located in Des Moines, Iowa, was one of two organizations Mosaic acquired in 2022.
“Mosaic is listening to the clients, to the guardians and support people in order to make the quality of life for the clients the best that it can be.” – Bonnie Bilyeu, parent of people served by Mosaic
Bonnie Bilyeu was grateful to an organization called Behavioral Technologies because they brought her daughter Chelsea out of a mental health institution and into a community setting.
“She did not belong there,” Bilyeu said. “If they hadn’t taken her, she would have ended up out of state, and it would have been devastating for our family.”
Behavioral Technologies, located in Des Moines, Iowa, was one of two organizations Mosaic acquired in 2022. As a highly involved parent, Bilyeu said she is pleased with what she has seen so far both for Chelsea and for her son Jonathan, who is also served by Mosaic.
“I like that they are taking the transitions slowly,” she said. “They’re excited about reducing the med levels for everyone and trying hard not to medicate people needlessly when they can find other ways for people to work through their issues.”
Bilyeu said both of her children have higher levels of need, and she is grateful for the dedicated staff members who support them. Many of the Behavioral Technology employees stayed on as Mosaic employees, and Bilyeu said she sees Mosaic encouraging them to use their “freedom” to do new things that will improve the personalization of services.
“Mosaic is listening to the clients, to the guardians and support people in order to make the quality of life for the clients the best that it can be,” she said.
Behavioral Technologies became a part of Mosaic on July 1, but Mosaic had been managing the organization since April 1, 2022. The unique agreement allowed Mosaic to become immersed in the routine, day-to-day activities at Behavioral Technologies and get to know the staff members and people supported, along with their families and guardians, preparing the way for a smooth, formal integration.
Through the acquisition, 37 individuals supported and approximately 100 employees joined Mosaic in Central Iowa.
On the same day Behavioral Technologies joined Mosaic, it was announced that Mountain Community Pathways, located in the Rocky Mountain Foothills outside of Denver, Colorado, would become a part of Mosaic in October 2022. Through that addition, approximately 40 individuals supported and 30 employees and contractors became part of Mosaic in Denver.
Mosaic has a Mission Expansion Roadmap, which gives a comprehensive view of growth strategies and identifies 15 key assumptions to guide growth. The assumptions provide clear direction to evaluate opportunities and include things like focusing on Mosaic’s existing geographic footprint and adjacent states and diversification into adjacent services that align with Mosaic’s mission.
