The Mustard Seed of Central Florida was established in 1984 at a time when homelessness was just beginning to emerge as a community-wide endemic. It grew from the personal commitment of the founder, Carol Kane, who saw all homeless individuals, regardless of race, creed, or social status, simply as God’s children in need of assistance. The Mustard Seed became a non-profit, charitable organization as a result of her faith.

The mission of The Mustard Seed Furniture and Clothing Bank is to help to rebuild the lives of families and individuals who have suffered disaster or personal tragedy by providing household furnishings and clothing while being environmentally responsible to our community.  The Mustard Seed collects donations of furniture, appliances, household items, toys, as well as anything and everything needed to create a home.  We grant the donated items to families and individuals to help them re-establish a home. Since 1984, The Mustard Seed has served the homeless, domestic violence victims, welfare recipients, the elderly, the disabled, disaster victims, the ill and others struggling to re-develop a home in the Central Florida area.
