Over 35 Years of Growing Hope
The Mustard Seed is a Christian non-profit organization that has been caring for individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty since 1984. Operating in five cities across Alberta and British Columbia, The Mustard Seed is a supportive haven where people can have their physical, mental, and spiritual needs met and grow toward greater health and independence.
We have been an agent of change for more than three decades, thanks to our donors, volunteers, and support from the community.
Building Community. Growing Hope. Supporting Change.
The idea for a street ministry came from Pat Nixon who founded The Mustard Seed in 1984, opening the first location in Calgary. Today, the organization operates in multiple cities, including: Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, and Medicine Hat in Alberta; and Kamloops in British Columbia. All locations offer an expansive range of programs and services to serve our most vulnerable community members.
Programs and services include:
- Basic needs - emergency shelter, meals, clothing, and hygiene items
- Health and Wellness
- Spiritual Care
- Community Engagement
- Neighbour Centres
With the support of our donors, volunteers, and the community, The Mustard Seed continues to grow and meet the needs of those we serve.
