EMB partners with UMVIM teams. In 2014, EMB coordinated and supervised the work of a VIM team from Franklin District, which replaced the roofs of 2 New Castle homes, as well as completed minor repairs on 9 other homes.


The Western Pennsylvania (WPA) Conference of The United Methodist Church (UMC) serves as a connection between the worldwide UMC and the 800 local churches in the WPA region. Although EMB is not an official agency of the WPA Conference, EMB coordinates UMCOR kit collection and disaster response with the conference. Occassionally, grants for specific projects at EMB are awarded by the WPA Conference as well.
