Improving Higher Education Outcomes

for Students from Foster Care

The Washington Passport Network is a statewide collective impact initiative committed to supporting students from foster care and the adult professionals they rely on. We empower professionals supporting students from foster care with information, knowledge, and tools to improve practices and student outcomes.

If you are a professional working to support students from foster care, or those experiencing unaccompanied homelessness, in accessing, persisting, or completing post-secondary education or apprenticeships in Washington state, then we consider you a member of the Washington Passport Network.
