As part of this MAP Event, HRI is honored to host the artwork of Jin-Ya Huang. Jin-Ya, a local abstract photographer, partnered with HRI for this engaging and emotional project, promoting awareness of abused immigrants and their journey to freedom in America. Jin-Ya met with HRI clients and staff to create captivating pieces which, not only, tell their stories of pain, joy, fear, and relief, but also provided clients an opportunity to heal.
