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.

A life of possibilities. We say that all the time at Mosaic. 

The pomp of a graduation ceremony seems to speak the same thing: a life of possibilities.

Those possibilities are almost palpable for a number of people served by Mosaic as they achieve graduation milestones this time of year. With their families, they look toward the future with optimism and excitement.

Mosaic in Colorado Springs

by Cheryl Wicks, Executive Director

We have been springing into action to advocate for the people we serve. In February, employees and people supported by Mosaic attended the Intellectual and Developmental Disability Awareness Day at the Capitol in Denver. We heard first-hand from Legislators on the importance of the work we do. Our team rallied together and left notes and business cards in the legislators’ offices.

Dustin Blackburn and Richard Schatz won first at Special Olympics state basketball this spring!

“I worked hard and am proud of my medal,” said Richard. 

The basketball game was difficult and went into overtime. In the end, Richard scored the winning two-pointer with a shot from the field, but he could not have done it without his teammates. Dustin plays forward on the team and goes wherever he is needed to defend his teammates.

Excerpt from Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center website: Originally called Acts 19:11 because of the “miracles” of therapeutic riding, PPTRC started in 1981 after several families asked Gay O’Rourke for horseback riding lessons for their children with disabilities and illnesses. Currently, PPTRC provides approximately 2600 classes per year to an average of 110 clients per week.

Thanks to the devotion of Mosaic at Home providers, Kim Halischak and Paula Sperry, the people they each serve have benefitted greatly from a local therapeutic program.
