"I have proudly supported MFS for over 10 years – first as a Legal Aid Society (LAS) fellow and later as a member of both the Legal Aid Society and GO boards – because MFS empowers all families in our community by mobilizing for social justice. MFS works to increase equity, inclusion and cultural competency in all of its initiatives. As an attorney and a former public school educator, I know first-hand the importance of social justice, and I look forward to supporting MFS for another 10 years!"

ALECK MATAMBO, Vice President, Strategic Planning, Dell Technologies

‘‘MFS has truly shown how organizations can adapt during challenging times. MFS demonstrated its agile and innovative mindset through adapting its operating model to continue safely serving the community. In times of strife, MFS has been and will continue to be there for those who need us the most. The road ahead will be challenging, but I believe MFS will continue to make a real difference."


TANYA DAVIS, Founder & Vice President, The Will Group

‘“MFS recognizes the importance of working and growing together. We are interconnected. When our brother or sister falls, we all fall. We succeed by helping others succeed. Only then do WE ALL succeed. When we don’t understand one another, we take the time to learn and grow from our brothers and sisters so that we can continue the journey together. As the old African proverb says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

‘“Through my work with the Altgeld Leadership Program, I have witnessed how Metropolitan Family Services nurtures the ambition of young students as they are shown options for post-secondary school and career advancement. MFS recognizes that these bright young leaders can be an example for us all!”


Empowering families goes beyond impacting lives today. At Metropolitan Family Services it means investing in future generations. Our Family Trust offers a unique opportunity to ensure thousands of family members, from newborns to seniors, will be able to access services that will help stabilize, strengthen and transform their lives.

“Metropolitan’s strong leadership and tangible impact are critical today, and it is apparent to us that they must endure to positively impact the Chicago area for future generations. Their data focus, strategic plan and program outcomes make it possible to envision a level of permanence.

It was an important decision for our family to establish an investment plan for Metropolitan Family Services in our will and support the perpetuity of their vision. Our commitment to our neighbors and love for Metropolitan Family Services are our driving forces to become proud Family Trust members and update our estate plan.”
