Upper Murray Family Care

Trust In Kids provides a timely boost to the most vulnerable kids and young people in our local community. Every cent you donate is spent on local kids and is tax deductible.

By supporting UMFC, you will help us provide free services and contribute to the vibrancy of our community through our programs to support local children, individuals, and families.

You can help

Whether you’re a local business looking for community partnership opportunities, a family, couple, or an individual looking to get more involved in the community, we’d love your support.

We have a range of ways you can help us support the local community.

Become a foster carer

Foster care can make an enormous difference in a child’s life. Giving them the care and support that they need will help them to grow. We are looking for people to volunteer to become foster parents. Hear from Melanie about the joys of being a carer.

One child, one family at a time, we are positively reshaping lives to create stronger regional, rural, and remote communities.
