WFS is supported by contributions from many individuals and organizations in Waltham and surrounding communities.

FWFS is mainly responsible for raising more than 30% of the operating budget to ensure the success of the WFS program. FWFS helps support WFS’ mission by providing teaching materials, such as books and art supplies for the preschool classroom, purchasing English literacy books for parents and supporting English instruction in the classrooms.

ELL families move from fear and isolation to confidence and community.
