United Methodist Family Services is a nonprofit organization based in Richmond with locations throughout Virginia. UMFS champions high-risk children and their families. The organization receives voluntary support from many United Methodist congregations including Reveille in the form of prayers, presence, gifts, and volunteering.
As a partner church, Reveille UMC promotes the need for foster and adoptive families. We respond to the need for tangible donations such as clothing and personal items and through fellowship activities. For more information about Reveille's UMFS ministry, contact Brenda Humphreys or Stephany Vivadelli.

From Poverty to Community
Open Table trains congregation members to form communities – called tables. These groups of 10-12 individuals can transform their own vocational and life experiences into tools that our brothers and sisters in poverty can use to develop and implement plans that create lasting change.
UMFS will launch the pilot project for this new ministry in 2017. They are searching for congregations to assist young people aging out of the foster care system, as well as helping families who are going through difficult times.
