Mission Statement: To meet immediate personal needs and produce a positive impact on the community.

Vision: To service the needs of the less fortunate, especially women, children and youth.

United Methodist Neighborhood Services (UMNS), supported by the Eastern PA Conference United Methodist Women's Trust, operates under the management of its Board of Directors and Managing Director Millicent Clark. It is affiliated with the  Eastern PA Conference Office of Connectional Ministries and receives support from volunteers and donors, churches of the Eastern PA Conference, community organizations and nonprofit agencies.

UMNS continues to be a vital part of its community by providing food, clothing and resources to those in need. The agency strives to aid individuals and families.

Since December 2016, UMNS has been located at Janes Memorial UMC in Germantown, which, along with First UMC of Germantown, plays an important role in the mission institution’s efforts to offer essential support to its community.
