Every 26 seconds a child drops out
For 131 years Franklin-Wright Settlements, Inc. (FWS) has protected the child, preserved the family and strengthened the community. Every 26 seconds a child drops out of school. Only 68% of Detroit youth graduate from high school. FWS works hard to provide youth with the resources, counseling and services they need to move on to a secondary education. To continue to fund these programs FWS needs your help. The Spirit of Giving Gala will feature the award winning Larry Callahan and Selected of God choir, which are featured in the Chrysler Made in Detroit commercials.
