Charity Navigator gives UMC Four Star Rating
HousingFest raises enough to house three people
HousingFest 2017, featuring St. Paul and the Broken Bones and Aaron Lee Tasjan, was a tremendous success. Held at The Fillmore on Saturday, March 10th, the show sold out as more than 2,000 people came together to help end homelessness in Charlotte.
Thanks to concert attendees, and our generous sponsors, HousingFest raised nearly $50,000. Those funds will help house three chronically homeless individuals, giving them a renewed sense of hope, security, and dignity. If you attended the show, our heartfelt thanks. If you weren’t able to make it, we hope you’ll join us next year as we continue the fight to end homelessness in Charlotte.
The Hundred Story Home wins a Christopher Award
On March 28th The Christopher Awards announced The Hundred Story Home as an award winner in the Books for Adults category. We are thrilled they have recognized Kathy’s work with this award which celebrates work which “affirms the highest values of the human spirit.”
In 2007, mother of four, graphic designer and UMC soup kitchen volunteer, Kathy Izard listened to a whisper that urged her to quit her job to help house the homeless. Along with building a home for one hundred people, she found faith, forgiveness, and fulfillment in her own life.
Order The Hundred Story Home on Amazon or call 704-926-0622 to purchase through UMC directly. Cost is $15 and all proceeds from the book benefit Urban Ministry Center’s Moore Place!
