Meadowgreen is a community in the South West corner of Saskatoon. The neighbourhood is home to close to 4,000 residents, many of whom come to Canada as refugees or immigrants as well as many Aboriginal and Metis families. MCCS’ programming is located along Appleby Drive, a street with 10 large apartment buildings and hundreds of children under the age of 16. Our programming acts as a bridge to the church by offering volunteer and internship opportunities for young adults.
