United Methodist Committee on Relief

UMCOR Organizational Values

The work of UMCOR is grounded in faith in God and in the communities we serve. This gives us the courage to serve boldly as the presence of Christ to alleviate human suffering and advance hope and healing.

  •  UMCOR provides practical, proactive support to the most vulnerable survivors of chronic or momentary emergencies stemming from natural or civil causes.
  •  UMCOR honors cultural differences. We deliver aid to people without regard to race, religion, politics, gender or sexual orientation. We seek input from local communities in identifying needs and developing innovative solutions.
  • All people have God-given dignity and worth. The most essential partner in UMCOR's work is the beneficiary.
  • UMCOR works with partners—especially those who are indigenous to the affected locale. Our Methodist family, the United Methodist Connection, civic organizations, faith communities, school leaders and other local resources are great assets to sustainable recovery and development, particularly after massive traumatic events.
  •  UMCOR is a good steward of its gifts and grants.
  •  UMCOR does not tie the promise of its relief and development activity to any religious or political viewpoint.
  •  The UMCOR professional staff incorporates best practices and standards to provide innovative, effective and integrated ministry.
  •  UMCOR welcomes the good efforts of countless individuals and churches who support us through gifts, prayers and service.
