CHAMPS is a new campaign to ensure bright futures for kids in foster care by promoting the highest quality parenting. CHAMPS — which stands for Children Need Amazing Parents – brings together research, policy solutions and a network of dedicated advocates with the goal of  spurring policy change in 25 states over 5 years.

The CHAMPS campaign builds on the vast body of research that shows loving, supportive families – whether birth, kin, foster or adoptive – are critical to the healthy development of all children. Quality foster parenting can mean better outcomes for children in foster care. It can help children heal from trauma, keep siblings together, increase stability and ensure that children achieve permanency through reunification with birth families, placement with relatives, or through adoption.

CHAMPS aims to spur policy changes in 20-25 states over 5 years in support of foster parents. Georgia and New York are the first two states to pick up the challenge.  Specifically, CHAMPS calls on policy makers to create a new partnership between foster parents and the public agencies responsible for foster care programs. A new partnership will improve the health and well-being of children and families across the country.

We invite you to get involved in CHAMPS.  You can learn more about CHAMPS by visiting the campaign’s website at www.fosteringCHAMPS.org.  If you agree that foster parents are game changers for kids, “like” CHAMPS Facebook and sign the CHAMPS pledge at http://bit.ly/2uBQQ4E.
