CHAMPS-NY Rallies on January 27th!

On January 27, 2020, the CHAMPS-NY campaign, co-led by Schuyler Center and Families Together in NYS, gathered in Albany with providers, parents and advocates to raise awareness about the power of family-based care for children who enter foster care. The group urged support for their FY 2020-2021 budget and policy priorities. Assemblymembers Andrew Hevesi and Ellen Jaffe joined them for the rally on the Million Dollar Staircase.

That evening, CHAMPS-NY partners appeared on Capital Tonight. Watch the interview here!
