We welcome United Methodist churches and churches from other denominations to partner with us. While UMFS is no longer officially owned by the United Methodist Church, we continue our strong ministry partnership. We are grateful for this connection. Local churches provide passionate volunteers, dedicated foster families, much needed prayers, and critical donations to support the high-risk children and families at UMFS.
