Partners for Our Children


At Partners for Our Children, we bring together the best minds from the academic and child-welfare communities, state leadership and the private sector for one purpose: to improve the lives of children in foster care in Washington State.

Core Services Offered

We work with our partners to identify critical issues facing children in state care. Our initiatives outline the issues, define the challenges, and present possible solutions based on research, testing and evaluation.
