WHAT IS UMCOR
As the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist
Church, the United Methodist Committee on Relief - UMCOR - assists United
Methodists and churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need.
UMCOR comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters -
famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire or other events- to alleviate suffering and serve as a
source of help and hope for the vulnerable. UMCOR provides relief, response and long-term
recovery grants when events overwhelm a community's ability to recover on their own.
UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and
ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery, and long-term health and development.

Habitat for Humanity partners with people in your community and all over the world,

need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
