IN THIS MONTH'S FAMILY MATTERS ...
“What I like most about being part of MPI is really my team. I work with a team of folks who are really committed to doing community work for the right reasons. We have a spirit of collaboration on our team, and we have a great camaraderie and culture on our team.”
- Vaughn Bryant, Executive Director of Metropolitan Peace Initiatives (MPI),
introduces himself on the new MPI website
Welcome to MetropolitanPeaceInitiatives.org
We're pleased to share a new website for Metropolitan Peace Initiatives! MPI, a division of Metropolitan Family Services, helps people heal from trauma by partnering with and offering support for community-based organizations in the Communities Partnering 4 Peace (CP4P) violence prevention collaborative.
Our new website highlights the work of MPI and CP4P, the communities where we're active in reducing gun violence, and the people behind these crucial efforts.
During the Legislative Roundtable, we were honored to share client perspectives! Watch our Behavioral Health highlight here
|Metropolitan staff and clients are Mpowered to advocate, for themselves and for their communities!
At our first-ever Legislative Roundtable, we were pleased to offer an opportunity for our frontline behavioral health and domestic violence staff and program participants to meet with their elected officials, and advocate for specific policy goals in our agency’s legislative agenda.
This dynamic conversation with several legislators and their staffs, hosted by our Government Affairs team and agency-wide Advocacy Task Force, elevated our perspectives on issues important to our communities.
Happy Week of the Young Child!
From the rock stars in our DuPage Center communities (pictured above) and across all of our Early Learning programs, happy Week of the Young Child! Our staff developed a week of creative and fun activities to recognize the National Association for the Education of Young Children's celebration of young children, their teachers, families and communities.
