Host Community

The Kavanaghs and the Ewerts (from left to right: Ben K, Rachel, Graeme, Jakob, Ella, Krista, Ben E, Audrey, and Byron the dog in front)

The Host Community is a group of families and individuals who call Kinbrace home. 

At the heart of the Kinbrace vision is living alongside refugee claimants as family. As the Host Community, Kinbrace is our home, and Kinbrace residents are more than neighbours; they become our friends and our family. Guided by the core values, the Host Community is available outside of office hours, offering an attentive and relational welcome as part of daily life. Our evenings and weekends together are punctuated by cups of tea, conversations in the backyard, spontaneous soccer games, and shared meals.
