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.

Save the Manatee Club is an award-winning national nonprofit 501(c)(3) and membership-based organization established in 1981 by renowned singer/songwriter, Jimmy Buffett, and former U.S. Senator, Bob Graham, when he was governor of Florida.

Human activities are harming manatees, and only our compassion and action can protect them.

Manatees are Florida’s official state marine mammal. They are listed as endangered at the international level by the IUCN World Conservation Union, at the federal level by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and at the state level by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Manatees are endangered largely due to human activity. Since record-keeping began in 1974, more than 41% of manatee deaths where cause of death was identified were human-related – and almost 34% were due to watercraft collisions (the largest known cause of manatee deaths). With increased awareness, education, regulations, and enforcement, manatee deaths caused by humans could be substantially reduced, and the eventual recovery of the species could be realized.

 Mission:

Our mission is to protect endangered manatees and their aquatic habitat for future generations.
