UMFS Celebrates 115 Years in 2015
January 7, 2015
This year is an important one for UMFS as we celebrate our 115th year of serving children and families in Virginia.
In a century, UMFS has evolved from a rural ‘orphanage’ setting in Richmond in the early 1900s into a statewide organization serving children and families throughout Virginia. The original orphanage, which opened in 1900, provided a nurturing homelike environment for almost 400 children. Today the Richmond campus is home to Child & Family Healing Center, a residential program for children and teens who need intensive therapeutic treatment; Charterhouse School for children in the community with special needs, including autism and other neurological differences; Richmond Regional Center, the hub for foster care and community-based services; and Guardian Place, a retirement community for residents 55 and older who are on a fixed income.
We look forward to 2015 and celebrating 115 years as Unwavering champions for children and families. Check out our Impact Report linked below for milestones we reached in 2014.
Included in our 2014 Impact Report are highlights about our Charterhouse School technical courses, staff volunteer service, treatment foster care and extreme recruitment programs.
