agog 2020 - thank you!

 

We can’t thank you enough for joining us virtually for this year’s A Gathering of Good! Your support showed us just how much good there is in the world, and we’re so glad we had the chance to celebrate with you! Thank you for making the work of MFS possible and helping us keep our communities connected and safe.

Gifts are still coming in, but we are thrilled to announce that we EXCEEDED our goal and raised over $195,000 for our work in the community! We are so amazed by the generosity of everyone who gave last night – thank you!

Black Lives Matter.

MFS stands by the Black community in our commitment to be antiracist.

We are paying attention, challenging our assumptions, and listening in new ways. We understand we are on a journey to help dismantle oppressive power structures in systems and institutions, and as an organization we need to unravel, and work on our own systemic issues.

Our pledge to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion frames how and what we do to promote social justice for all; we humbly acknowledge statements are not enough and that taking action is most important.

MFS During Covid-19

 

During this time of worldwide challenge due to the Covid-19 virus, MFS has taken steps to reduce risks for our clients, employees, and volunteers.

We have shifted from a site-based to a virtual-based organization, limiting any person-to-person physical services to those that are considered “essential”.

Until further notice:

  • MFS main office at 1808 SE Belmont is closed – along with our Rockwood and Lloyd Center offices.
  • We are operating our Hillsboro office with limited staff to manage essential business functions.
  • Our NE 24th office is operating at reduced capacity in order to support adults living at home who need essential services through our MFS Project Linkage program.

Through virtual contact, MFS staff are in touch with the people we serve in an effort to be responsive to current and changing needs.

Current MFS Services include:
Throughout MFS, our goal is to remain steadily present for the community we serve – especially at this time. We are grateful for our many partners who are extending their support and we wish everyone health into the future.

 


Metropolitan Family Service helps people move beyond the limitations of poverty, inequity and social isolation.
