Hope. Children and families who come to United Methodist Family Services come here to find hope. Hope for a new foster or adoptive family. Hope that a child can be healed. Hope that the family can be whole
For 112 years UMFS has been helping children and families in Virginia find hope. Through our treatment foster care program, foster parents and children find one another and often go on to become adoptive families. Through our residential treatment programs at the Child & Family Healing Center and Leland House, girls and boys overcome trauma and heal. Through Charterhouse School, students with special needs and autism find help and success. And through Project LIFE, teens aging out of foster care in Virginia find new skills and a voice. Through all of our services children and families find hope.
How can you help a child or a family find hope? Become a foster parent, volunteer or donate to UMFS. UMFS is a 501(c)3 organization and your gifts are tax-deductible. Give hope to a child and watch him grow.
