The Outreach Team at Altadore has a tradition of promoting a special offering each Thanksgiving. This year, the Outreach Ministry Team has chosen to support Calgary Meals on Wheels and their part in a new pilot project: the Integrated School Support Project. This project provides holistic support aimed at increasing the chances of social and academic success for students and their families at two Calgary elementary schools. It will include a positive Calgary Police Service presence, an on-site psychologist, a physical education specialist, access to social workers and health clinicians, breakfast and lunch programs, and after school programs with a focus on mentoring and tutoring. There are 15 community partners involved including Calgary Police Service, City of Calgary Community and Neighbourhood Services, Calgary Public Library, YMCA Calgary and Meals on Wheels.
