The Mosaic Story (borrowed from mosaicsofmercy.com)
“Mosaics of Mercy started meeting in the garage of one of our founders in Spring 2016. We would gather together, make mosaics, and share our own unique journeys around mental health and addiction recovery. From our discussions, we knew not having the connections led to people feeling lost and alone. We desired to be the change. We now have our own four walls, but the heart and spirit of Mosaics of Mercy is something that through the power of God and all of you extends beyond a physical structure.
Our mission is to help families navigate mental health and addiction recovery. We serve our community as a hub for mental health resources, education, and hope. Founded by real people, we committed to sharing their stories of hope and healing to benefit others.
We believe connection is a remedy to the common experience of feeling isolated, overwhelmed, and alone. Internally and externally, we all experience things that impact our mental well-being. Physical illness, loss, traumatic events, mental health struggles, and substance abuse are a few examples. We can help.”
Sherry Burkhard, one of the founders of Mosaics of Mercy helps lead and guide the Task Force through building and connecting resources to the community. She currently co-facilitates the Resources and Implementation group and spoke at the very first, Annual Community Help Expo in Fall of 2020.
