Part of the mission and ministry of Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church is providing the opportunity for physical sanctuary for a threatened immigrant. As you know, Rosa Gutierrez Lopez has resided with us since December 10, 2018. During that time we have been providing security, hospitality and comfort for her and her family. It takes 275 slots filled monthly with regional volunteers in order to make this happen.

New volunteers are always needed to sustain our efforts. There are opportunities for many different types of participation. Our greatest needs are for volunteers to serve as daytime and night-time companions, interpreters/translators, and to assist with meals/errands, and children's transportation and activities. Proficient Spanish speakers are always especially valued. At this time, we are also seeking volunteers with expertise in the areas of family law and nutritional counseling.

Please encourage contacts in your congregations and networks to attend an upcoming training to learn about the opportunities to assist in this vital effort. The next training sessions will be Sunday, Sept 15, 2:30 – 5 pm in the Main Room of the Chalice House and Thursday, Sept 19, 6:30 – 9 pm in Lower Level Rooms 32-35 of the main building.
