Mineral County Day Honoree

Mike Price - 2021 Mineral County Day Honoree

The Mineral County Day Committee is proud to announce that the 2021 Honoree is:

Michael Price

Piedmont native Michael Price began his career with Burlington United Methodist Family Services (BUMFS) in 1996 as a Treatment Associate after serving 24 years in the Air Force and earning a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree. Over the years with BUMFS he worked his way up the ladder to become the President/CEO until his recent retirement. 

 

Mike is a visionary leader that worked to grow BUMFS statewide. He laid a foundation of ingenuity and service that has created strong relationships with other agencies and government programs. The addition of more Community Based Services; Staggers Recovery House; moving SARAH’S House to a much-needed larger location; purchasing and restoring the Alkire Mansion for use as the Mill Meadow Boy’s Home; and purchasing additional Mineral County property for a second recovery house are just a few of his major accomplishments as CEO.

 

Under his leadership the agency now has offices in 22 of the 55 West Virginia counties including Berkley, Cabell, Mason, Pendleton and Randolph to name a few.  The services provided at the satellite locations include Foster Care, Parents as Teachers and Safe at Home.

 

Mike embodies the BUMFS Mission: “Changing lives by Preventing Harm and Providing Hope & Healing to Hurting Children and Families.”  He always addresses employees as FAMILY.  Since his retirement he continues to be part of the part of the Family by volunteering in his free time.
