UMFS foster parent needs your help


This past weekend one of our unwavering champions, foster parent Kat Taber, lost nearly everything in a house fire. Kat and her sons escaped the fire unharmed wearing only their pajamas and are now in need of some basic items to help them move on.

Here at UMFS, we believe that our relationships with foster families and our neighbors build community. That’s why we’re asking you to help us get the family back on their feet by supporting the foster child through in-kind donations.

Can you help support one of our unwavering champions in this time of need? If can donate clothing items to the foster child, contact Tory Everson, at 804.353.4461 x 1359 or
