UNITED METHODIST CHURCH & ITS AFFILIATED ORGANIZATIONS
January 25, 2010

UMCOR is one of only 4 agencies that received an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy for its response to Haiti (as of January 23, 2010). UMCOR is one of the largest relief agencies in the world, working in over 100 countries and in the United States. It is currently the only relief agency still working in Louisiana and Mississippi to provide permanent housing for thousands of families who are still in need. Other non-profits are helping, but they rely on UMCOR, as a relief agency, to do the case management, logistics, and provide funding and volunteers. Families work with UMCOR to rebuild their houses at no cost, so they finish the work debt-free. 100% of all donations to UMCOR go directly to relief because all of the administrative costs are covered by United Methodist congregations.
