Mosaic is an affiliated social ministry organization of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and a member of Lutheran Services in America.
Current Project: Independence Matters
"Independence" carries a lot of meaning for those of us at Mosaic. Every day, we empower people with intellectual disabilities to live independent, full lives. One thing we've found, though, is the definition of independence changes with age. As the people we support grow older, independence may simply mean getting around without a wheelchair. To assist people to be as independent as possible, we provide transportation to and from work and lunch, both important outlets. This need is rapidly growing, which means we need to adapt.
What is the need? With two running vehicles, Mosaic could safely assist more than 24 people in getting to and from work. We already have one, that means one to go!
What is the cost? A new, 12-passenger vehicle will cost a total of $13,000.
How will you purchase the vehicle if today's goal is only $5,000?
Your donation to Mosaic during Big Give Gage will be used as matching funds for grant applications. Raising $13,000 on Big Give Gage would be okay with us, too!
Thank you in advance for supporting Mosaic and keeping people on the path to independence.
