The Mosaic Division Street group home is a five bedroom home designed with eco-friendly materials in Elkhart’s Historic District. As the residents are excited to settle in to their beautiful new home, we took a look back at the process. Although trying at times as we learned how to make sure all surveys, inspections and codes were met on time, the community support has been phenomenal.
As the demand for Mosaic’s services increased, so did our demand for more living space. In order to provide greater quality of life to those individual’s receiving services, we needed another home. With help from the community, the Division Street home began to break ground.

The home was a community effort. Not only did the news media help spread the word about the new home on Division, but individuals did as well.
