As a Sanctuary Congregation, we offer assistance to families who are affected by an ICE detainment or deportation. Assistance takes on many forms, such as rides to court hearings or other appointments, obtaining gift cards, or delivering meals. We also can provide advocacy by appearing at hearings, writing letters, or making calls to elected representatives.
Green Sanctuary: We use compostable paper products when we can and have installed energy efficient lighting. We are also in the process of creating a permaculture playground. Many of our families are involved in the “resilient neighborhoods” program to reduce our carbon footprint.
