Purpose

The United Methodist Agency for the Retarded ("UMAR") is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to providing residential opportunities that allow developmentally disabled adults to live in their communities as independently as possible, in safe, accessible housing, with grace and dignity. Established in 1983, UMAR operates 20 group homes and 8 apartments across Western North Carolina from Hayesville to Greensboro.

UMAR homes typically house six residents differing in age, ethnic and religious background. Facilitating personal choice and respect for individual differences is our priority. UMAR commits itself to focusing on the aspects of daily living involved with the residents of our homes. The well-trained staff assists each resident with personal rehabilitation, family support, health and dental care, personal hygiene, access to community resources (banking, shopping, legal counsel), support groups, vocational coordination, social interaction, education and transportation. UMAR cares about the resident's lives and works to enhance their quality of life.


Mission statement
