Franklin-Wright Settlements, Inc. has been a strong force in helping the community help itself for 140 years, and is a cornerstone of strength in supporting individuals, families and groups on the east side of Detroit and throughout the tri-county area.
The values of Franklin Wright are based on the settlement house concept of self-help for the continuous improvement and preservation of the family. Franklin Wright strives to achieve this through excellence in service and equality of treatment.
Franklin Wright is rooted in a geographical neighborhood district. Its goal is to know and understand the neighborhood and to help develop its potential by providing aid in obtaining the services people need.
Franklin Wright is concerned with the families and each of its members. The organization aims to afford opportunities to each individual to find and develop his, or her potential for a satisfying life in the home, neighborhood, community and nation. In doing so, it supports the conviction that human beings have a capacity for self-direction and growth.
Franklin Wright crosses all lines of race, religion, national origin and economic status, seeking to improve relationships among individuals and groups with different backgrounds, while at the same time preserving the uniqueness of each culture. To this end, it provides opportunities for a variety of individual, group and inter-group experiences. We are innovative and flexible, developing methods and coordinated programs to meet specific needs, often demonstrating the value of innovative activities.
