UMFS is an unwavering champion for high-risk children and families, collaborating with communities to help them reach their full potential.
For 114 years UMFS has been helping children and families in Virginia reach their full potential. Through our treatment foster care program, foster parents and children find one another and often go on to become adoptive families. Through our residential treatment programs at the Child & Family Healing Center and Leland House, girls and boys overcome trauma and heal. Through Charterhouse School, students with special needs and autism find help and success. And through Project LIFE, teens aging out of foster care in Virginia find new skills and a voice. Through all of our services children and families are empowered. – less
