Promise is the national magazine of Mosaic. The publication covers success stories of persons served by Mosaic; news about the organization’s whole healthcare and operational innovations; updates on expanding services; continued government advocacy for the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) community; Mosaic’s leading strategies regarding the changing face of healthcare; local agency reports and more. Promise is typically issued in June and December each year.
This issue of Promise illustrates the power of partnerships—our workforce, people we serve and their loved ones, donors, volunteers, churches, businesses and others—to create opportunities that empower people like Mary, Chato and Jory to live full, meaningful lives on their terms. Read about their lives; why donor gifts to Mosaic matter; Rejoicing Spirits’ 20th Anniversary; and why three Mosaic direct support professionals chose their work, and why they love it.
As our Called to be Bold comprehensive fundraising campaign closes, this issue features more stories about how continued donor generosity enables people we serve to lead a bolder life; an advocacy and legislative overview; and a story about seeing Mosaic International’s work for people in Tanzania deeply touched the lives of a pastor and his wife.
March was National Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Month. This issue celebrates the achievements people with IDD make when they make their own life choices that mirror their hopes and dreams. On the more serious side, we include a report about the direct support professional workforce shortage crisis—brought on by decades of low government funding.
In our Called to be Bold cover issue, the magazine details the lives of four people we serve who are now living bold lives in the way they choose–and on their terms; an account of Mosaic International’s 20th Anniversary with Motivation Romania and the heartwarming work that’s being done there; and a report on how and why our Mosaic at Home® service line is growing.
Read about Mosaic’s approach to whole-person healthcare and why it’s important for an individual’s overall health with stories of people we support who are in better physical health because of it. We also feature our international work featuring one young Tanzanian man who overcame the worst of circumstances to eventually become a business owner.
This issue includes a cover story detailing how Mosaic has grown in New England by adding two like-minded organizations to our network; personal stories of belonging; and a heartwarming tale from Mosaic International and its work in Tanzania.
