The Mustard Seed has been given the service provision contract for Grande Prairie’s Coordinated Care Campus. According to the City, the Mustard Seed’s mission is in alignment with the Coordinated Care Centre in their “recovery-oriented” model of care which includes housing, employment, health and spiritual wellness, and community engagement.
Grande Prairie Mayor Jackie Clayton says the Mustard Seed’s experience and expertise make them “well-equipped” to lead services and programs at the CCC. Additionally, Clayton says the move supports multiple city council goals related to housing and homelessness.
“[This] will support residents in sustaining long-term housing, meeting our objectives for the Homelessness Strategy, and ensuring a social and economic return on investment.”
The Mustard Seed was selected as the new service provider for the CCC through a lengthy procurement process and the change replaces the city’s former service provider Northreach Society. The Mustard Seed will begin operations at the campus on February 1, 2024.
