Mosaic Celebrates 100th Anniversary
This Tuesday, February 19, Mosaic will celebrate a milestone anniversary. Their centennial celebration titled: A Century of Service, A Legacy of Love will kick-off with an organization-wide celebration with staff and individuals they serve in 38 locations across 10 states. Mosaic was formed July 1, 2003, by the consolidation of two Nebraska-born Lutheran ministries dedicated to the needs of people with disabilities. Bethphage began in 1913 in Axtell, Neb., and Martin Luther Homes began in 1925 in Sterling, Neb.
Mosaic has been providing services to adults with disabilities in the San Angelo area since 1983 when Bethphage opened three homes serving 24 people. Mosaic in San Angelo now serves near 100 adults and teens in eleven group homes and Home and Community Based Services, and employs 120 staff members. People served by Mosaic in San Angelo receive services tailored to their needs and desires including 24-hour residential living, intermittent supports and employment opportunities. Mosaic in San Angelo also provides for the needs of the community through the Mosaic Redwine Child Care Center serving all children, including those with special needs, and the TRAILS Therapeutic Riding Program
“Mosaic in San Angelo is humbled to be a part of an organization with such rich, meaningful history,” said Liz Jones, executive director of Mosaic in San Angelo. “Our hope is to share our story and mission with our community by inviting them to come Discover the Possibilities at Mosaic.”
Discover the Possibilities is a free, one-hour tour of Mosaic's mission offered twice a month at Mosaic in San Angelo. If you are interested in attending an upcoming tour, contact Janet Ridgway at firstname.lastname@example.org or 325-651-3333 ext 206
