The History of UMFC
From humble beginnings in 1979, UMFC has grown into a vibrant and diverse organisation, with a primary goal of strengthening, nurturing and caring for children and families throughout North East Victoria and the Upper Murray.
Under the legal entity of Upper Murray Family Care Incorporated (branded as UMFC) we are an independent, non-government, community managed agency, offering a range of quality services that are responsive to the varying needs of communities extending from the cities of Albury/Wodonga, Wangaratta and Benalla, to townships throughout the Towong, Mansfield, Alpine and Indigo shires. By providing information, support and advocacy, we seek to empower individuals, families and community groups, and to contribute to a balanced, just and ethical society.
