Happy International Women’s Day

Take a moment to thank the women in your life whom you love and respect. We are thankful for so many great women involved with Metropolitan Family Services!

In recognition of Women’s History Month we will be highlighting notable women of Metropolitan’s history all month long. Take a look at our first feature on Lucy Flowers.

Lucy Flower

Lucy Flowers
Lucy Flower was one of the founders of the Chicago Bureau of Charities (along with Jane Addams), which later merged with Chicago Relief and Aid Society to form The United Charities (now Metropolitan Family Services). After working as an assistant principal of a high school in Madison, WI, she joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin.  She then moved to Chicago, where she developed the idea of a Juvenile Court and introduced kindergartens in Chicago schools.
