Meet the woman behind a Detroit nonprofit supporting every generation in the family

“We hug to embrace to say we love each other and we’re a family and we’re going to do this together,” said Monique Marks.

Monique Marks is the president and CEO of Franklin Wright Settlement, a nonprofit helping the Detroit community help themselves since the late 1800s.

“The Ford Plants went up; the other plants went up and people were eager to find better work, better opportunities in a very thriving city and so they migrated here,” said Marks.

Originally a nursery and kindergarten, the Franklin Wright Settlement has evolved into a three-campus community staple.

“We’ve kept the same premise, that we embrace the entire family,” said Marks.

They offer daycare, parenting classes and ensure our seniors remain healthy-safe and independent.
