Homeless to Homes: An Evening with Kathy Izard
Friday, March 3 at 5:30 PM
Join us for an inspiring evening as Kathy Izard speaks about her journey to change the world, one family at a time. Kathy was an award-winning graphic designer in Charlotte, North Carolina before successfully launching the pilot program, Homeless to Homes, for the Urban Ministry Center in 2007. She successfully demonstrated this Housing First program could succeed and led the city-wide effort to raise $10 million to build Moore Place, Charlotte’s first permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless men and women. She has also written an inspirational nonfiction book, published in October 2016, entitled The Hundred Story Home: A Journey of Homelessness, Hope, and Healing. Kathy lives in Charlotte with her husband and four daughters. The evening starts with dinner and a book signing from 5:30 to 6:15 PM; Kathy speaks from 6:15 to 7:15 PM and concludes with a time of Q&A until 8 PM. The cost for this event (which includes dinner) is $10. Please add an additional $15 if you would like a copy of Kathy’s book. Childcare will be available.
