Now, I am proud to serve as Co-Chair of the Campaign to Mpower Families and have worked to spur further investment in Metropolitan’s programs by Chicago’s business community.

Co-Chair, Campaign to Mpower Families
“I wanted to play a bigger role in Metropolitan’s success after being part of their strategic planning sessions. When you learn more about their impact on families and children, how could you not want to support the organization?”
Metropolitan’s business model of providing bold leadership, wraparound support and measurable results at the community level is a proven formula for success. I hope you will consider an investment in their forward-thinking work – I know it is a worthwhile investment.
