“I didn’t realize community engagement was my passion until I started working at Inala Community House. We run different programs and work a lot with refugees. Settlement & Support is really about helping new immigrants to belong here.”

“Refugees are the most resilient, strongest people I know. If we could promote their strength, I believe the outcomes for their futures and our society would be much different. In a positive way.”

“We have no idea how lucky we are until we talk to a refugee.”

I met Haley, the Community Engagement Manager at Inala Community House, at the opening to Dolores as the Pop-Up Story Catcher for the Anywhere Festival, Tylor King Gallery, 5 May 2016.
