First Place Scholars is Washington’s first charter school, focused on educating and supporting K-5 students who are living in poverty and with multiple traumas, helping them rise above their personal circumstances, accelerate academically, display strength of character, and prepare for college and career readiness. Children targeted to attend First Place Scholars are in a socio-economic class that is directly correlated with future high school dropout rates.

Our three goals are to:

  1. Accelerate each student’s academic performance as demonstrated by monitoring academic growth on a weekly basis
  2. Increase students’ skills, ability, and self-efficacy to address their social and emotional challenges
  3. Demonstrate that students who attend FPSCS for two or more years leave fifth grade proficient in all subjects

The Permanence Project provides free and low-cost legal services that achieve permanence for Washington’s orphaned or vulnerable children. Typical clients are lower income couples or individuals who require legal assistance in order to provide permanence for the children in their care. When children have permanent homes, fewer children are in foster care, and fewer ‘age out’ when they turn 18. As a result of their efforts, Washington’s next generation of children will have a real hope, and a future.

Sadly, some children never find a permanent home and remain in foster care. Those who never find a permanent home face serious life challenges. Over 22 percent of Washington foster youth are homeless after age 18, with 33 percent of their incomes below the federal poverty level. Unfortunately, 65 percent of kids who aged out of foster care in Washington State have experienced seven or more school changes from elementary through high school.

The Permanence Project helps overcome legal barriers and helps children find the permanent homes that can change their lives.
