// MISSION

Franklin-Wright’s values are based on the settlement house concept of self-help for the continuous improvement and preservation of the family. Franklin-Wright Settlements (FWS) strives to achieve this through excellence in service and equality of treatment. FWS, established in 1881, is rooted in southeast Michigan. Its goal is to know and understand neighborhoods, to help develop their potential, to provide or aid in obtaining the services people need, and to relate the neighborhood to the wider community.
