The CHAMPS Policy Playbook is grounded in evidence and provides policy examples that, when implemented, will pave the way for transformational change for children, families and systems. The Playbook is organized around three focus areas, (1) child-centered policies that promote quality caregiving; (2) parents as partners in decision-making; and (3) quality assurance to help agencies maintain an ongoing focus on quality foster parenting. For each area, the Playbook includes policies that draw on real examples of foster parenting policies being developed and implemented by child welfare leaders around the country, including those involved in the Quality Parenting Initiative. The Playbook also includes recommendations from a wide range of issue experts, including parents and youth who have personal experience in the child welfare system.
