No one can create sanctuary alone. It takes a community. The vital and varied work of New Sanctuary is done every day by hundreds of volunteers with all kinds of talents and strengths. We always need more volunteers because the work is never done. The government’s unreasoned attacks on immigrants grow and we grow to meet the needs.

Here are links to many of the ways you can help. Pick one. Pick more than one. We’ll provide any needed training. You provide the people power.

    The Immigration Accompaniment Program helps support families who are going through the immigration process in 3 ways:

    • PROVIDES A SUPPORT STRUCTURE to strengthen those caught in immigration proceedings
    • KEEPS FAMILY MEMBERS INFORMED at every step of the process as their loved ones move forward
    • HOLDS LEGAL OFFICIALS ACCOUNTABLE for providing accurate information and serving due process

    It is a concrete way to extend sanctuary for the most vulnerable among us. Sanctuary is not a physical entity but the spaces wherein all of us can breathe freely and in dignity.

    We are building a movement that cares and protects the other, not matter where they are from or who they are. We are opening sanctuary spaces on every block where people can feel safe and welcome.
