Spotlight On: Metropolitan Family Services

Posted on January 30, 2019

Metropolitan Family Services strengthens families and communities. Last year, the organization helped more than 80,000 people toward realizing their full potential through a network of seven community centers throughout Chicago, Cook and DuPage Counties. Offering an array of services designed to empower children and families to learn, to earn, to heal and to thrive, Metropolitan’s emphasis on wrap-around programming ensures it reaches not only one family member, but also supports the unique and evolving needs of the entire family. A focus on collaboration extends Metropolitan’s reach even further, as it works with community partners to develop its programming while strengthening the neighborhoods where it operates.

In addition to its work in education, economic stability, emotional wellness, and empowerment, Metropolitan Family Services is the convener of Communities Partnering 4 Peace (CP4P), a collaboration among nine of Chicago’s leading outreach organizations who have combined their expertise to jointly impact nine Chicago communities most affected by gun violence.
