Many people use the PHUMC/Temple Micah building throughout the week, and this sign up is for door monitors to make sure that Araceli and her family remain safe in our building. If you would like to sign up to help with other aspects of Sanctuary (overnights, respite for Araceli, or dog walking), please visit tinyurl.com/parkhillsanctuary.
This sign up is for monitoring the door on the parking lot. There are three time slots available: 9am to 1pm, 1pm to 5pm, and 5pm to 8pm. We only need day time door monitoring during the week - Monday through Friday. When someone comes to the door, greet them pleasantly and ask where they are going inside the church. Direct them to where they are going.
If ICE (Immigration, Customs Enforcement) comes to the door, DO NOT let them in. DO NOT stand near the door, as the sensor will cause the door to unlock. Talk to them through the window in the Ushers' Lounge (to the left), and tell them you are calling our lawyer and will be with them shortly. Be pleasant and calm. Follow the instructions on the "Ten Commandments Instructions" that is in the Ushers' Lounge (where overnight volunteers sleep). Call the Rapid Response Team number for our lawyer and Araceli's lawyer.
If someone comes in and says they want to see Araceli, DO NOT direct them to her. Instead, ask them what their name is and then text Araceli at 720 451 9600. Tell her who the person is, and ask if she was expecting him/her. If she wants to see the person, escort him/her downstairs. If she does not want to see the person, wish the person a good day and good bye.
