Intentional growth at Metropolitan starts with our strategic, inclusive and forward-thinking leadership. Both fresh and familiar faces are coming together, in the spirit of collaboration that defines Metropolitan’s approach to community growth, to refresh the ways we create new opportunities and increase access to our existing opportunities for the children and families we serve.

» Growing collaboration to support programming
Whether it’s with St Augustine College and Lurie Children’s to provide educational opportunities for Parenting Fundamentals staff and client graduates, or with Cradles 2 Crayons to offer high-quality supplies for Early Learning and Community Schools children and their families, strategic partnerships with community organizations are a hallmark of Roxanne’s leadership.

Part mentor, part motivator, part advocate, since 1857 Metropolitan Family Services has been the engine of change that Mpowers families to reach their greatest potential and positively impact their communities.
