Reviews for Metropolitan Family Services

Rating: 5 stars  

I am the principal of Gompers Fine Arts Option School located in the West Pullman area. We have a long-standing relationship with the Calumet office of Metropolitan Family Services and I don't know how we would manage the myriad of social issues we encounter on a daily basis without them. Not only are we part of their 21st Century Community School program which provides a quality before and after school program; they have provided support in many ways to families going through life-altering experiences. We're very thankful for their on-going support! Melody L. Seaton
