Do you have ideas that would strengthen foster care in your area? Not sure where to start to advocate for the changes you want? We can help!

NACAC is working with CHAMPS (Children Need Amazing Parents) to help you make policy changes in your state. In this session, we will review the CHAMPS policy goals and discuss how foster and adoptive parents and kinship caregivers can work with legislators, executive branch officials, and the media. Learn how to get involved in advocating for policy reforms to strengthen foster parenting.

CHAMPS is a national campaign to ensure bright futures for kids in foster care by promoting the highest quality parenting. CHAMPS aims to spur policy reforms in 20 to 25 states over five years to ensure that foster parents are equipped with the training and support they need to be the best they can. CHAMPS also aims to help improve the public’s understanding of foster parenting and create a more positive perception of foster parents. More information is available at
