Leadership St. Pete® Class of 2021’s “Seeds of Hope” project
Mustard Seed Inn provides transitional housing to homeless adults who have begun their recovery from alcohol, drug abuse, and/or mental illness. Established more than 20 years ago, the facility provides counseling, case management, job support, and recovery-based services that help adults develop the skills needed to transition into permanent housing within the community.
LSP’s Seeds of Hope project has a three-pronged mission:
- To help restore a sense of community belonging for these men and women in transition;
- To cultivate individual growth on their path to recovery and independence; and
- To harvest a higher level of equity and inclusion among the Mustard Seed Inn residents as they work and integrate back into the St. Petersburg community.
Each year, Leadership St. Pete® (LSP) embarks on an annual Class Project to provide planning, fundraising, and physical labor support for a local nonprofit organization. The 40 community leaders of the Class of 2021 selected WestCare’s Mustard Seed Inn (MSI) for this year’s civic engagement and physical facility improvement project.
The project will upgrade and improve the communal areas indoors, as well as outdoor space, including garden, courtyard, fitness area, storage area and create a mural on the outer walls facing 25th Street and Central Ave.
