Host Sites and Project Lists


The broad Project Lists of sites that are willing to host UMVIM teams can be found below.  Ministries that are actively calling for assistance from UMVIM teams or that have been recommended by Western PA mission volunteers are highlighted separately. 

UMVIM Project Lists

These are sites connected through the United Methodist Church and ecumenical partners that are aware of the UMC goals of mission, our standard practices of financial accountability and are set up to welcome teams. Your reports after service help to maintain the accuracy and quality of the sites on these lists.
