CHAMPS is a national campaign to ensure bright futures for kids in foster care. CHAMPS — which stands for Children Need Amazing Parents – seeks to elevate the importance of quality foster parenting with policy makers.

The campaign invites all interested organizations and individuals to sign the CHAMPS pledge to show their support for today’s amazing foster parents.  The pledge is not a lobbying statement; it simply communicates support for the campaign’s goal of calling policymakers’ attention to the vital importance of quality parenting in the lives of children and youth in foster care.  Organizations and/or individuals that sign the pledge will be included on a list of CHAMPS supporters, which is published the campaign’s website. The format for listing supporting organizations is:  organization’s full name and state where organization is located (or national). The format for listing supporting individuals is:  first initial, last name, individual’s state of residence.
