From its humble beginnings in the early 19th century as freestanding mission societies formed by women in their own congregations UMCOR has developed into the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief assists United Methodists and churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need. UMCOR works with vulnerable communities to strengthen self-sufficiency and encourage partnerships. As an outreach organization, UMCOR responds to U.S. and international disasters, addresses diseases of poverty, ministers to refugees and immigrants, provides clean water and actively works to reduce hunger.
