Our Mission

Embracing the settlement house philosophy, a multi-service holistic approach in cooperation with the community, FWS focuses on the prevention, treatment, and amelioration of social problems, through advocacy, programs, projects, activities, services and facilities. The enduring strength of FWS lies in flexible, responsive programs that recognize ongoing basic needs, despite changing societal priorities and funding.
