Mosaic supports adults with intellectual disabilities in group homes, apartments & host homes around Polk County. Mosaic provides opportunities for those we serve to live full lives, and one of the ways you can help is to become a companion volunteer. No matter what your hobbies are, we can find an individual we serve who either shares your interests, or would love to learn while making a new friend! We want our companion volunteer opportunities to be a meaningful friendship for both the volunteer and the person in service.
