About The Mustard Seed
The Mustard Seed is a Christian organization with a mission to alleviate poverty and homelessness through acceptance, empowerment, and practical solutions. We care for those in need, by providing a safe, supportive haven where they can not only have their physical needs met, but can also grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We strive to create a meaningful difference within the community and in the lives of those facing poverty.
At The Mustard Seed, we believe in helping people where they are at. We understand the value of going out into communities, providing supports to those in need, and working collaboratively to prevent people from falling deeper into the cycle of poverty. We know that poverty is no longer confined within the blocks of our downtown streets or city core; it is not kept to one particular corner of town or ward. There are individuals throughout our city seeking basic services, relationships, support – individuals in need of our help.
As The Mustard Seed continues to grow, it is our hope to expand our reach and services across Canada. We will go where our help is needed; not for the sake of growth, but for the sake of seeing the transformation in someone’s life when they achieve wellness and independence.
Who is The Mustard Seed (and what do they do)?
The Mustard Seed is a charity that has been serving people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Alberta and British Columbia for 35 years. We offer a range of programs and services to the most vulnerable in our community by providing safe shelter, nutritious food, basic needs (clothing, hygiene items, access to hot showers), and access to crucial health and wellness services. We’re also committed to turning lives around through wrap-around supports, from addictions counseling to education and employment programs.
What is Peer-to-Peer Fundraising?
Peer-to-Peer Fundraising is, as the name states, a fundraiser led by you for your peers to join. From choosing the fundraising event, to assembling the team, or fundraising solo, it's all in your hands! When you choose to start your own Peer-to-Peer fundraiser with The Mustard Seed, all proceeds from your fundraiser will go to supporting and raising up the lives of men and women in our community who are experiencing homelessness and/or poverty.
