Success Stories

Our kids’
Journeys

“My daughter struggled for almost 15 years, with wrong diagnoses from ADHD to bipolar, with psychosis to PTSD. Then she came to UMFS and what do you know, a diagnosis that puts them all together – Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD). Now we better understand and, with the wonderful support of the kind and encouraging knowledgeable staff here at UMFS, we are making bigger strides everyday to bring our baby girl home.”

Mother of CFHC Resident

“When I first arrived at UMFS I was nervous and scared…UMFS changed me for the better. I’m no longer that angry person who likes to be upset all the time. They helped me see my future more clearly. My goals for the future are still the same as when I first came to UMFS, to become a lawyer and one day open my own law firm. I really would like to say thank you to everyone that helped me become the person I am today.”

“…they [UMFS staff] do very good in taking care of the services and the people. UMFS found me an awesome home. I have someone who can bond with me and understand my feelings. My respite homes have been great, too. My social worker is always putting in my head that I need to do the right thing and get my grades up. She is helping me get ready for my future.”

“At the Child & Family Healing Center, I have pushed myself to work hard to complete treatment and become a better person. I am realizing I have feelings and, through the care of UMFS, I know I can be successful in Life.”
