A Christian organization called the Mustard Seed is expanding into Lethbridge. The group plans to provide sober supportive housing to our city’s most vulnerable. The nonprofit already provides over half a million meals per month, and nearly 500 shelter mats to various communities in the province. The managing director for Lethbridge, Byron Bradley, says the group is hoping to eliminate homelessness and poverty.
“We want them to be sustained members of the community. A shelter is not a home…a shelter should be a place where people stop by for a short time,” adds Bradley “We want to put keys in their hands. We want to bring hope to their lives, and probably back to their lives maybe for the first time in a long time”.
The Mustard Seed is looking for volunteers. Those interested can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
