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!
