CHAMPS-NY and NYS Attorneys for Children: During COVID-19 Pandemic, #PAUSEAgingOutNY of Foster Care
CHAMPS NY is a statewide group of advocates and providers working to promote state policy and practice change that ensures that when children must enter foster care, they are placed into family-based settings whenever possible, and that their caregivers are supported so that children experience the best possible permanency and well-being outcomes.
Our goal: By 2021, in each New York State county, CHAMPS NY seeks to increase by at least 15% the percentage of children in foster care residing in well-supported family-based care, with a comparable reduction of the percentage of children in group homes.
