Give Detroit – A Charitable Registry
Founded in 1881, 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 has been a pillar in the southeast Michigan community since its founding.
