Families today face unprecedented challenges. Increased demands on
time and a changing socio-economic landscape contribute to family
stresses. More than ever the essential functions of family need our
attention - providing safety, fostering a sense of belonging, and
creating a network of support.
Metropolitan Family Service recognizes that economic and social
stresses result in families who struggle with finances,
relationships, and parenting. To help address these issues MFS
provides parent education and skill-building and promotes parent
involvement in the lives of children, schools and communities, and
fosters strong, functioning families. We offer culturally
appropriate services to reduce family conflict, improve one’s
physical and economic situation, and create peer support.
Metropolitan Family Services provides multiple programs and services that
build family support.
