Dear Mosaic Family,

My name is Nic Batterton; I joined the Mosaic team at the beginning of February as Omaha’s new Associate Director.

My compassion for helping people began as a child. As early as fourth grade, I regularly volunteered to take people to recess with me, and I spent my young adulthood advocating for those who were suppressed by societal norms.

A dream became a reality at the Inclusion Matters picnic on May 18 at Mahoney State Park.

Kevin Miller always wanted to ride a motorcycle. After learning there were going to be motorcycle rides at the picnic, Kevin was ecstatic! He came prepared with his own helmet and a huge smile.

The driver and owner of the motorcycle, Joe Garcia, was anxious to give Kevin his ride.

“We have been talking about doing this for a long time, and I’m just so thrilled that it’s finally happening,” Garcia said.

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.

Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives.

Our frontline staff are at the heart of helping the people we support reach their needs, goals and dreams. We're always looking for passionate, caring individuals to fill these roles.

If you're looking for meaningful work, we'd love to chat with you.

Earlier this week, we were notified of a disturbing and violent video making the rounds in our community.

The video depicts a young man with intellectual disabilities being called names, yelled at, punched and choked by a peer at a playground while other students watched.

It breaks my heart to see someone with a disability attacked simply because of who they are. No one deserves what happened to this young man.
