The mission of Metropolitan Family Services is to provide and mobilize the services needed to strengthen families and communities. Through its seven community centers, Metropolitan Family Services serves 72,000 individuals and families throughout the state of Illinois. Metropolitan Family Services programs and services span four key areas: 1) education, 2) economic stability, 3) emotional wellness, and 4) empowerment. Metropolitan Family Services works with eight other community-based organizations to deliver street intervention and outreach services in nine south- and west- side Chicago communities, predominately serving black and Latino men. This award provides travel assistance to enable Metropolitan Family Services staff to attend the MBK Rising! convening in Oakland, California which will bring national practitioners who serve boys and men of color together to share best practices and examine solutions to the complex challenges of serving this population.
