Did you know that 30 years ago:

  1. NASA launched space vehicle S-214.
  2.  Australia unveiled the 1st platinum coin, called the Koala.
  3. Most importantly – in our opinion – Mosaic began providing services to people in the State of Delaware!

But how did it all begin?

My name is Rebecca Daly and I was a Direct Support Intern for Mosaic this past semester as a student at Delaware Technical Community College in Newark, Delaware. I selected Mosaic for my directed practice as a student in the human services program because I wanted to learn more about people with intellectual disabilities and how I can help people with disabilities someday as a social worker.

As soon as we arrived at St. Stephen’s Evangelical Lutheran Church for Wilmington Art Loop, Shari sat down at the piano and began to play. Shari Hope, a person served by Mosaic in Delaware was invited to volunteer for Art Loop by Pastor Jason Churchill, to do what she loves most, playing the piano.

Shari played passionately for about an hour, a variety of songs, and one right after another. She played each song, all from memory, including gospels, American traditional tunes, nursery rhymes, and classical pieces were part of her repertoire that evening.

As I walked into Roland’s home, the first thing I noticed were all of his belts from martial arts hanging on the walls. The collection was impressive. I learned that it was formed over the course of many years of dedicated training. Roland shared with me that it all started years ago when Roland would ride on the bus past martial arts classes and watch the people practicing their craft. Roland was fascinated as he rode by each day and watched. Roland decided one day that he no longer just wanted to watch, he wanted to participate.

Seth bowled a 175 in his first game and a 134 in his second game. When asked how he felt after winning second place, Seth responded, “Good! A lot of people were cheering!” He added, “A lot of friends came that he hasn’t seen in a while!”

Mosaic serves more than 100 people in Delaware. The money that is raised in partnership with donors goes to support individuals and fill in the gap where funding stops and dreams begin. Unfortunately, even with generous contributions, our individuals only have about $40 left on average each month after paying their bills. That is about $10 a week for them to spend on activities most people take for granted, such as going out to eat, hygiene items, or a night out with friends.

Before Mosaic, Jamal said his life “wasn’t good, it was terrible.” In high school he had financial struggles, which caused him to worry about whether he would eat. This frequently led to him finding himself in trouble and hanging out with the wrong crowd. 

After a few years of struggling with where to live, Jamal was alone and homeless, resulting in Jamal moving into a nursing home. Imagine being a young active man, 21 years-old living in a nursing home. Thankfully, his stay at the nursing home was only temporary.
