A 3-week series about housing, eviction and homelessness
led by Kathy Izard, Tommy Holderness and Liz Classen-Kelly
Community leaders will share their callings to work with our neighbors to create not just a place but also a sense of home. Come to learn more about our neighbors’ lives and and ways to address housing issues in our community.
- Nov. 10 - Kathy Izard, author of The Hundred Story Home and A Good Night for Mr. Coleman
- Kathy will talk about what has been done (she was instrumental in bringing Moore Place to reality) and where they’re going. She will address the idea of belonging and what she thinks home is.
- Nov. 17 - Tommy Holderness, FPC Member and Attorney at Legal Aid of North Carolina
- Tommy will talk about the connection between his calling to Union Seminary and how it led him to leave a corporate law practice to work for Legal Aid of NC.
