Global H.O.P.E.

Disaster Response and Refugee Support

Assisting communities impacted by natural, ecological, public health, and economic crises, the UCC Global H.O.P.E. team... Read more and its partners stand poised to help people rebuild their lives following disaster, forced migration, and other traumatic events. Your support to the USA Emergency fund allows Disaster Ministries to aid local relief efforts and bridge the gaps in existing resources for long-term community revitalization. These gifts also enable Refugee Ministries to provide for emergency refugee needs and partner with congregations and organizations for transitional resettlement services. Your support to the International Emergency fund allows Global H.O.P.E. to respond with partners, including through Global Ministries, when natural disasters and other crises upend lives locally or forcibly displace people from their homes. Donations to specific appeals are directed for the relief, support, and recovery of those affected, as described in the appeal.

The team’s volunteer network for disaster response in the United States includes UCC congregations, conferences, and Conference Disaster Coordinators and a breadth of faith-based and community partners through the VOAD network. Refugee Ministries also connects with a network of UCC congregations, conferences, and individuals, and with partners such as Church World Service, who provide support for refugees and asylees seeking to resettle in the United States.

Internationally, Global H.O.P.E. works with partners whose relationship is held by the staff of Global Ministries and engages through the ACT Alliance, a global network of Christian humanitarian organizations. These direct relationships and partnerships with networks, organizations, and faith communities enable the team to respond to emergency and long-term needs appropriately and effectively with localized leadership.

With your support, we will continue this important work. If you have questions or need further information, please contact us at or 1-800-846-6822. Thank you for your support.
