The Passage Foundation was created 12 years ago as a means to provide financial assistance to former residents and clients of both Northwest Passage and Northwest Counseling and Guidance Clinic. The community comes together and raises these funds with an annual golf scramble.
Northwest Systems have been committed to providing quality residential treatment and assessments for “at risk” kids for over 30 years. The Northwest System’s commitment to kids developed and expanded beyond residential programming in 2002. Northwest Counseling and Guidance Clinic and Northwest Journey have joined the Northwest continuum of care and helped respond to community planning and treatment. Hundreds of children and adolescents have benefited from our programs and have gone on to become healthy, productive community members. This has most often involved hard work, perseverance and personal risk. To acknowledge the ability of these former residents to overcome adversity, the Northwest System has developed a foundation, The Passage Foundation, which will help provide support or assistance through monetary scholarships.
This Foundation is entirely volunteer based and operates separately and independently from the Northwest System’s programs. The Awards Committee includes volunteer community members from throughout Wisconsin such as business men and women, judges, social service personnel, and education professionals.
The Passage foundation will grant monetary scholarships based on the following criteria:
