Creating pathways to college for women in prison.

About Us

Our Mission

FEPPS provides a rigorous college program to incarcerated women in Washington and creates pathways to higher education after women are released from prison. Our goals are to increase women prisoners’ economic and personal empowerment, contribute to family stability and reduce recidivism through college education.

Felicia Class of 2017
“I want to make an impact by showing that education can truly transform your life and that if you don’t allow yourself to be limited then your future is limitless. My accomplishments and triumphs are a triumph for all young girls that have been told to shrink themselves and not be the biggest version of themselves.”
Gail Class of 2017
“I feel like anything is possible. Even when there may be obstacles, I know that if I work hard enough, there will be people who support me. I know I am able to understand concepts that allow me to be actively engaged in conversations that impact policies and laws. I see myself 30 years from now-as an old lady, who continues to educate herself-because I’ve realized there’s so much to learn about and we can never know enough.”
Ginger Class of 2017
“Our self talk is our biggest barrier. I told myself I’m not smart enough or intelligent enough to do college. I felt less than the other girls in the class. I just started telling myself I can do this. I am sitting in this class right now so I am smart enough to be here! Don’t compare yourself to others… You can and will do it!”
