“No one's ever done anything like that. People ask me how I met you (A Future with Hope, Inc.) and I just say, I don’t know. It’s God’s work. My neighbors can’t believe the hard work you've done on my house this week. You need to let people know who you are. I want to tell your story. I praise God.”

We are a people of Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.  We invite all people to participate in our community and worship life without insisting that they become like us in order to be acceptable, including:

  • People who hope for a better world and who have lost hope;
  • Believers and seekers;
  • Conventional Christians and questioning skeptics;
  • Women, men, children and youth;
  • People of all sexual orientations, gender identities, races, cultures, income levels, classes and abilities.

UMCOR is a ministry of The United Methodist Church, and our goal is to assist the most vulnerable persons affected by crisis or chronic need without regard to their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. We believe all people have God-given worth and dignity.

While UMCOR cooperates with other aid organizations to extend our reach, our most important partners are the people we serve.  We are confident that successful solutions to emergency or chronic conditions begin with the affected population.  UMCOR provides these survivors not only temporary relief but long-term education, training, and support.

UMCOR spends 100 percent of designated donations on the projects our donors specify.  When UMCOR donors give their time, money and supplies, they join UMCOR as the hands and feet of Christ.

The United Methodist Church

The United Methodist Church is an 11-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens doors and opens minds through active engagement with our world.

No matter how or where they serve Jesus Christ, United Methodists do God’s work in a unique structure—referred to as “the connection.” We live out our call to mission and ministry by engaging in ministry with the poor, combating diseases of poverty by improving health globally, creating new places for new people and renewing existing congregations, and developing principled Christian leaders. No one congregation can do all these ministries, but together—through the power of our connection—we can make a tremendous difference. 


The People of the United Methodist Church: 

  • Help people in their community
  • Accept you for who you are
  • Offer a place to belong
  • Care for and support each other
  • Show respect for other religions
  • Support people facing difficulty
  • Welcome diverse opinions and beliefs
  • Guide others to find deeper meaning

United Methodists come in all sizes, shapes, colors, dispositions, outlooks and life stories, but share a unique history and faith perspective. Our members speak many languages and live in many countries.
