It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Walk with us virtually or in-person on February 20, 2021 – there’s a place for everyone!
The Mustard Seed has been serving people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Alberta since the ‘80s. It has become a haven for those needing help, which is offered through open hands with unconditional love.
The growth of The Mustard Seed has been much like the Bible, where Jesus tells the parable of the mustard seed.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field: it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” – Matthew 13:31-32
At The Mustard Seed, we care about the whole person – physical, mental and spiritual. We recognize that the root cause of poverty and homelessness are complex and diverse, and so we continue to grow with the needs of those we serve.
