Enjoying a big plate of Easter dinner is something many of us take for granted. But for someone who is experiencing homelessness or poverty, a plate of delicious food could change everything.
Meals like the ones we serve at Easter are so much more than food. Many of our clients have started with a meal and then gone on to use our employment services, receive counseling, and find help getting a place to live. None of these life-changing things would happen without that first plate of food.
With your support we can ensure no one in our community goes hungry this Easter. For just $3.51, give the gift of a meal — and a chance at a new beginning.
Because of people like you, a chance at a new beginning is what Sable* received when she found The Mustard Seed.
At just 23-years-old, Sable has already overcome incredible adversity to get to where she is today. Sable struggled with serious and undiagnosed mental health issues for years, and at one point her mental health deteriorated so much that she lost everything and had to be hospitalized. After receiving treatment, she was released from the hospital but had nowhere to go. Without a home and no money to buy food, Sable turned to The Mustard Seed’s emergency shelter.
Sable was provided with nutritious food, clothing, a safe place to sleep, and ultimately the support she needed to get back on her feet. Our staff connected Sable with permanent supportive housing, and with the help of our employment program, she was able to find a job. In Sables words:
“I feel like The Mustard Seed caught me. I found what I needed.”
