More About Our Services
Treatment Foster Care
As opposed to simply “Foster Care” children in treatment foster care have experienced multiple moves or have emotional trauma. This is where UMFS shines in our ability to pair a child with the right family and parents and also offer parents 24/7 on call support, local support groups, and individual strategies for each child in foster care. The choice to become a foster parent is one of the most fulfilling and impactful decisions you can make to improve the lives of foster children and teens.
