The Scott Mission is a Christian ministry of mercy and love. It aims to meet the needs of people with love and compassion and seek to bring spiritual, physical, and emotional wholeness to their lives.

The Scott Mission was founded in 1941 by Rev. Morris and Mrs. Annie Zeidman as a non-denominational Christian organization responding to the needs of the poor, homeless, abandoned and vulnerable of all ages. Based in Toronto, the Mission offers practical, emotional and spiritual support to thousands of people every year.

While religious belief and practice are never conditions for receiving help and assistance, and everyone is welcome regardless of faith background, The Scott Mission is committed to the spiritual well-being of all people through the life and witness of Jesus Christ. Their hope is for everyone to have a personal relationship with Jesus, and to express this relationship in a life of integrity and in acts of compassion toward others.

The Mission is privately funded and employs over 100 dedicated staff at 502 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, its Family Centre in East York, the Collingwood Retreat Centre and its Summer Camp in Caledon.

Over 35 Years of Growing Hope

The Mustard Seed is a Christian non-profit organization that 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 initial idea for a street ministry for the homeless grew out of the Burning Bush Coffeehouse in Calgary, Alberta, which was run by the First Baptist Church in the ‘70s and early ‘80s. It became a reality in 1984, when founder Pat Nixon planted The Mustard Seed in an old house downtown, which later grew into a larger building on 11 Avenue SE.

The Mustard Seed has been an agent of change for more than three decades.

Today, The Mustard Seed has expanded across western Canada with multiple locations in Alberta and British Columbia. It offers an expansive range of programs and services to our most vulnerable community by providing basic needs (food, clothing, and hygiene items), education, employment programs, health and wellness services, spiritual care, housing, and emergency shelter.

The more than 400 staff who work at The Mustard Seed care about the whole person – physical, mental and spiritual. They recognize that the root cause of poverty and homelessness are complex and diverse, and so the organization continues to grow with the needs of those it serves
