MFS has a long history of serving families. It has managed to stay solvent for over 150 years, even in the face of ecnonomic recessions in social service agencies. As an employee over 8yrs, I have appreciated the reputation MFS has, especially Calumet site. My ability to positively impact children and families has been great because of the professionalism, concern, and support of MFS. Wasi Young, M.S.H.S.A.
