UMFC Grand Opening

On the 11/5/17 we celebrated the opening of our new Wodonga office with over 100 friends and colleagues. Our guest speaker and official opener was Victoria’s Commissioner for Children and Young People, Liana Buchanan. Liana spoke passionately and eloquently about the importance of early intervention and support for vulnerable children and youth. Such services include UMFC’s Out of Home Care, Child and Family Services and the Hume Riverina Community Legal Service. Having these programs all under one roof promises stronger collaboration leading to better outcomes for our service users. Essential infrastructure as represented by our new office is part of the evidence the agency is committed to delivering high quality services for our local community. It is a source of great pride that this significant capital investment has been achieved without any government contribution. The independence of UMFC is further strengthened by such accomplishments.

UMFC acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We acknowledge their culture is a living one, which relates to their ongoing connection to all things living and non-living on land, sea and sky. We pay our respect to their elders past and present. May our children of today lead us to a better tomorrow.
