The Mustard Seed is excited to announce its newest partnership with northeast Edmonton’s Mosaic Centre. On June 15, the two poverty alleviation agencies merged, coming together through their shared goals of building healthy community, inspiring hope, and supporting sustainable change.
“By coming together we can make a greater difference in our community, inspiring hope and transformation for the individuals we serve,” says Mosaic Centre Co-Directors Megan Schuring, Linda Deveau, and Kelly Hennig. For the three Directors, the merger was a welcomed opportunity to better meet the increasing demand for their services.
“By coming together we can make a greater difference in our community, inspiring hope and transformation for the individuals we serve.”
Mosaic Centre is a not-for-profit resource centre located in Edmonton’s Belvedere area. The Centre was founded through the collaborative efforts of three community churches: Emmaus Lutheran, Trinity Christian Reformed, and Steele Heights Baptist. After three years of street outreach, it became obvious that the social issues connected to poverty, hunger, and homelessness were greatly under-addressed in the northeast sector of the city. In response, Mosaic Centre was formed, opening its doors in November 2009. The Centre has since provided a warm, safe, and welcoming environment as well as housing supports, workplace reintegration, life mentorship, and Indigenous programming for the city’s most vulnerable individuals.
“We are excited to have Mosaic Centre join The Mustard Seed family,” says Chief Executive Officer of The Mustard Seed, Stephen Wile, “together we look forward to meeting the needs of those living in northeast Edmonton.”
The Mustard Seed is pleased to say that Mosaic Centre now operates as an integral part of our organization and its greater ministry.
