The Mustard Seed Medicine Hat has made the decision to purchase the Salvation Army Centre of Hope Shelter effective Oct. 1.
As the cold and unsafe weather approaches, we are committed to providing a safe, warm place for our most vulnerable citizens.
Programs and services will not be disrupted during this transition of ownership, as our clients and our mission to provide hope and well-being is our leading priority. In our desire to eliminate homelessness and reduce poverty where we serve, the facility will continue to provide shelter, support, and services for up to 30 individuals in need.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to maintain our critical programs and services for those we serve,” says Colette Eirich, Managing Director for The Mustard Seed Medicine Hat. “Our hearts were telling us that we needed to help and care for our neighbours, especially now with winter approaching.”
The Mustard Seed Medicine Hat assumed operations of the Salvation Army Centre of Hope Shelter on April 1, 2022, fostering and furthering the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of the community.
The Mustard Seed is a Christian non-profit organization that has been caring for individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty since 1984. Operating in five cities across Alberta and British Columbia, The Mustard Seed is a supportive haven where people can have their physical, mental, and spiritual needs met and grow toward greater health and independence.
