Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations in society. MSC began in 1978 as a home for children with disabilities on the outskirts of Kingston, Jamaica. We have since expanded and built additional facilities in Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe. The majority of our programs are dedicated to the residential care of children and adults with a range of developmental and physical disabilities including Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy, and muscular dystrophy. MSC also cares for children affected by HIV/AIDS in Jamaica and Zimbabwe. In Jamaica, we provide a home for teenage mothers in crisis where they can transition safely into motherhood. Our vision for each apostolate is to create a loving and caring environment to aid in the physical, mental, and spiritual development of our residents.

In addition to residential care programs, MSC is involved in numerous outreach and community development initiatives in the countries where we serve. MSC employs over 400 local workers, offering jobs, training, and economic viability to people who would otherwise have no opportunity to break out of the cycle of poverty. MSC strives to introduce skills into the community and to empower its people. We are working towards helping our apostolates become fully self-sufficient through sustainable agriculture. This will improve the quality of life for our residents while also providing a source of revenue to support our core mission and improving food security within the local community.
