Metropolitan provides an extremely broad range of services and eligibility for them varies from program-to-program. For example, some programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of pregnant and new mothers; adoptive families; people recovering from mental illnesses; older adults; students in particular schools; people who have survived abuse; people with certain legal problems, etc. Some programs are designed to meet the unique needs of a community and are provided from some but not all of our Community Centers.
