Metropolitan Family Serivces is a life line to many people living throughtout the Chicagoland area. Speaking from personal experience - by the grace of God, MFS threw me a life line when my previous employer suddenly closed its doors and left me and hundreds of other employee in the cold. Metropolitan Family Services gets five stars from me.
