United Methodist Committee on Relief

Where We Work

UMCOR uses a series of criteria to determine if and where field offices will be established, including:

  • There is an established need for UMCOR in the country (e.g., UMCOR’s presence will fill an existing gap).
  • The need corresponds to a program area in which UMCOR has expertise.
  • Sufficient funding through private and public donors is available to establish and maintain the office and programming in the country.
  • A local United Methodist congregation or organization has invited UMCOR to work with it in a particular aspect of humanitarian relief or development.

The UMCOR Armenia office has recently become an independent, national nonprofit organization called UMCOR Armenia Foundation. Click on the Armenia button to learn more.
