When the wind moved through this outdoor art display, everyone was mesmerized. Our day program visits the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center about once a month and everyone has their favorites. While Debbie always points out the Chihuly glass display, Alfred enjoys petting the animal sculptures in the tactile gallery.

The development of our employees is a top priority for us. While our process has been enhanced over the years, the focus is still the same – we want an agency that has a mission-driven, values-led workforce. We want to listen to our employees and help them develop both personally and professionally. 

I am thrilled to share that the foundation we built has helped us have a team of employees who want to advance within Mosaic. Over the past couple months, we have been able to promote four of our employees! 

They are:

As I hear the sound of birds chirping outside my office window, it causes me to pause, in the fast pace of life. At this moment, I immediately think of the wonderful accomplishments we have recently had. The pride I feel for each of our employees and our stakeholders is hard to put into words so let’s talk about our accomplishments.

In March of this year, Mosaic in Colorado Springs kicked off the Career Explorers program through our day services. The program gives the people we serve a behind-the-scenes look at a variety of jobs they might be interested in. Our first job shadowing site was the Tony & Guy Hairdressing Academy. People in service had a great time hearing from the students and were all given a free service that day! Some chose to get their nails done, while others chose to get their hair trimmed or colored.

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.
