Foster Parents Needed

Hope.  When a child comes to UMFS, they are in desperate need of love, comfort and most importantly hope. A child could be recovering from emotional or physical abuse or she could be struggling in school because of a learning disability.  Whatever the case, UMFS is here to help these children recover, find hope and live a better life. Lives turned right side up are our specialty. We need your help.
