“As a social worker, I see how many different organizations work with families. Metropolitan Family Services is a model that other not-for-profits can learn from. Our executives are forward thinking and action-oriented. I support the Transformation Fund because I know Metropolitan will do even greater things with new investment in technology and leaders. Metropolitan is “my” organization, and my number one priority for support.”

Securing the future for our families

Every child, student, parent and senior we serve depends on us. We need to protect our financial security so families throughout Chicago will know we will always be there for them. Growing our endowment helps us weather the storms and prepare for the unexpected – and the future.

“I’ve been on the board for 30 years and what continues to impress me is how well managed we are, the high quality people, the low overhead and the strength of our endowment. We have great financial expertise on the Investment Committee who have done an extremely good job of protecting our endowment. This has allowed us to meet the growing needs of families, and plan for the future.”

Education opens the door to possibility

Metropolitan Family Services DuPage is partnering with the Addison School District 4 Board of Education to build the New Addison Children’s Center, which will serve the needs of the community’s birth to 3-year-old children and their families. The center will fill an important gap, as the community currently faces a severe shortage of early learning opportunities.
