Watch Let's Talk About CHERP™!

WHAT IS A CHERP®?

CHERP is a Children’s Emergency Response Plan.

It tells emergency responders who should care for your kids in the event of a tragedy.

What does a CHERP do?

CHERP helps you capitalize on your legal right to name guardians & temporary delegates for your children in case something happens to you.

CHERP helps you legally authorize temporary delegates who could respond to your children in an emergency– these are people nearby who you trust, that know your children, and who your children love.

CHERP makes sure that your babysitters, family, police, and paramedics know what to do in case of an emergency so that your children do not have to be taken into protective custody or end up in foster care.

CHERP ensures that you name long term guardians for your children so that they’re raised by the people you choose, rather than letting a court decide for you.

CHERP alerts your caretakers to people in your life that may not be safe for your children to be around.

CHERP supports the decisions you make with carefully engineered documents, instructions, and alerts to the people who you’ve selected to care for your children at all times.
