Review for United Methodist Family Services of Virginia (UMFS), Richmond, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has worked for UMFS since 2002. UMFS manages the Adoptive Family Preservation Program (AFP) which provides free services to adoptive families throughout the state of Virginia, to support permanency and child/family well-being. As an individual and family therapist I have had the priviledge of working with many AFP families who have adopted children with highly specialized needs. Most of these adoptive families do not have the resources to afford the intensive (and costly) services they need to help these children heal, and AFP is a life saver for them. Every day I feel extremely lucky to work for an an agency that puts children and families first. UMFS is a wonderful agency that deserves a spot on the Top-Rated Nonprofits list!
