United Methodists Responding to Disaster

Disaster events are a common occurrence, and when we hear of the devastation we often feel a desire to serve the site we see on the news. However, there are many families waiting to return to their homes from events that occurred two to three years ago. Please consider responding to one of these locations ready to receive long-term recovery teams. Below you will find a link to a list of active Disaster Long-Term Recovery (LTR) sites throughout the USA, along with an interactive map of these sites.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) brings God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by war, conflict or natural disaster. UMCOR provides humanitarian relief and disaster response to people in more than 80 countries, including the United States.

After the recovery has begun, wounds have been tended, basic needs met, and the world’s attention has faded, The United Methodist Church continues to be present by providing ongoing assistance.

UMCOR provides survivors not only temporary relief, but also long-term education, training, and support. While UMCOR cooperates with other aid organizations, the most important partners in the work of recovery are those being served.
