The Imprint

Youth & Family News


Fostering Media Connections (FMC) uses media and journalism to lead the conversation about children, youth and families. We publish The Imprint, the only media outlet focused exclusively on three critical, yet undercovered issues: child welfare, youth justice and youth homelessness. In addition to regular reporting of national and local stories on these subjects, we produce a weekly news podcast featuring analysis and in-depth guest interviews.

About our journalism

Produced by a diverse group of staff reporters and freelance writers, The Imprint’s daily news stories, expert columns and op-eds provide in-depth coverage of the people, policies and practices that land children in foster care and criminal courts.
