UMCOR is a ministry of The United Methodist Church through the General Board of Global Ministries, 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.
UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the United States. We provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupt life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own.
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.
Gretna Glen is blessed to provide a place apart that transforms lives. Each year we host 10,000 summer campers, volunteers, school group students and retreat guests. We are so grateful that this 200 acres is set aside for opportunities for children, youth, and adults to grow closer to nature, build relationships, and grow in their faith. Gretna Glen is a Christian Camp and Retreat Center located just east of Hershey, PA amidst the beautiful forest and stream of Mt. Gretna, PA. We hope that you enjoy time exploring our site and come back often. You are welcome to come visit us in person and experience Gretna Glen for yourself.
