WAF About: Intro

We are architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects, teachers, and students
working to improve access to all the benefits and opportunity that design offers. Through programs in and out of school, scholarships, design services for community non-profits, and design competition that supports the Capital Area Food Bank, WAF uses its resources wisely to offer help and make change where it is needed most.
