What does The Mustard Seed do?
The Mustard Seed cares about each individual as a whole person – physical, mental and spiritual. This organization recognizes that the root causes of poverty and homelessness are complex and diverse, and the organization continues to grow and evolve in response to the needs of those that they serve.
Your generous donations will help to feed, clothe, and shelter individuals who are living in poverty in our city, as well as provide resources to move these individuals into long-term sustainable housing and employment.
