Since 1857, Metropolitan Family Services (MFS) has been the engine of change that empowers Chicago-area families to reach their greatest potential and positively impact their communities. MFS empowers families to learn, earn, heal and thrive. The nonprofit’s 900 employees (and another 900 volunteers) help 72,000 people yearly — 81 percent of which belong to the working poor or lower-middle class.
In Shelley Stern Grach’s latest Civic Chat: Networking Our Neighborhoods, she sits down Ricardo Estrada, President and CEO of MFS. He details the organization’s goals (the four Es): Education, Economic Stability, Emotional Wellness, and Empowerment.
