Mosaic in Denver

Get your finest dress and your fanciest shoes. It’s time to dance. Mosaic is bringing back, for the second year, our version of a summer formal: “Tinseltown 2017 – A Mosaic in Denver Production.” With a team of volunteers who are planning, guiding, and directing, on July 22 we will host an amazing event that will be fun for everyone. Last year at the closing of “City Under the Stars 2016,” we had many requests to have another dance. We were excited to announce at the end of April the plans for Tinseltown 2017.

Alex started his career at Chuck Latham Associates, Inc. more than seven years ago. He had finished high school and was seeking meaningful opportunities to fill his days. Through a mutual friend of his family and Kathy Latham, Chuck’s wife, Alex got connected to Chuck Latham Associates. Alex worked two days a week for a few hours a day. He seemed content and never missed a day. He shredded paper, worked on bagging samples of various products, and folded advertisements and letters to be sent out; he pretty much kept to himself.

Arsema and her beautiful family had another person with a disability in their home at the time and felt they were ready to share their hearts with another person. They were welcoming to Janelle, making her feel a part of a family, which she felt was missing from her life. Arsema’s warm personality and engaging smile helped Janelle feel at home, and she decided this was where she wanted to be.

Elmer began working at Taco Bell in July 1993, taking a position as a dishwasher with the assistance of his job coach. Today, 24 years later, you still find him there, full of smiles, enjoying his job and singing to the oldies station playing in the kitchen. Elmer has seen many coworkers come and go over the years, but the customers continue to stream in and the regulars greet him with excitement. When Elmer is in the community, he is often recognized from his job at Taco Bell. “They know me,” he says.

One of Mosaic’s core values is connection. We partner with families and communities, supporting people to build mutual relationships and be valued, participating members of their community. Occasionally, through the connection process we are fortunate to find individuals who share our passion and identify with our mission and willingly give of themselves, expecting nothing in return. Traditionally we call these people volunteers, but to us they are so much more. They are our valued partners and friends.

Giving a Voice is important to advocacy at Mosaic, but especially in the wake of a national election, as we just experienced. Empowering people to understand their rights and receive supports that work for them is key to our mission. Mosaic also has a voice at the state and national level with the help of almost 30 Mosaic Allied Voices (MAV) volunteers to influence funding and policy decisions that impact the people we support.

Community Relations Manager

As the Community Relations Manager at Mosaic in Denver, my job is to find resources, friends, and funds for the people we support. I was fortunate to locate all three when I joined the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce (CWCC) and their DTC Leads Group.
