Fostering Media Connections
Fostering Media Connections is a 501 c(3) non-profit that harnesses the power of journalism to advance child welfare reform by covering emerging solutions to the system’s challenges.
We accomplish this mission through strict adherence to solution-based journalism. First, we report and produce our own coverage, which is published in The Chronicle of Social Change. We then market those stories to mainstream and niche media outlets in an effort to change the overarching foster care and child welfare narrative towards solutions, not simply problems. We also train student journalists, policymakers and social workers in solution- based journalism, and share our expertise with professional reporters. Finally, we are connecting the national child welfare field through The Chronicle to increase its collective impact.
