The Hundred Story Home

A true story about finding faith in yourself and something bigger.

Join us for an inspiring luncheon as Kathy shares her story of finding her purpose and leading the city-wide effort to build Moore Place, Charlotte’s Housing First program for the chronically homeless as outlined in her book The Hundred Story Home.

The Hundred Story Home weaves together her motivational story of a call to social action and Kathy’s personal journey to define the meaning of home. The book not only makes you believe you can change the world, it will also end up changing you.

About Kathy

Kathy Izard was a graphic designer, wife, mother of four daughters, and volunteer at Charlotte’s Urban Ministry Center when an unlikely meeting with a formerly homeless author Denver Moore (Same Kind of Different as Me) changed the course of her life. Inspired by Denver’s challenge to do more than serve in the soup kitchen, Kathy quit her job to take on what seemed like an unimaginable task in her second half of life—to build housing for Charlotte’s homeless. Read Kathy’s full bio here.

Kathy has been recognized with several awards for her book and her service. They include:
•2017 Christopher Award for Adult Books
