January 20 Timely Topics: Campaign for King's Ridge: The Solution for Homelessness Is Housing

NEW TIME & VENUE: This meeting is now on 1/20 at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom.

Fraley Marshall and many friends read the book The Hundred Story Home by Kathy Izard, which details the creation of Moore Place in Charlotte, a permanent, supportive apartment community (PSH). Determined to replicate this model in Raleigh, Fraley and friends researched affordable housing in the Triangle, visited Moore Place in Charlotte, and searched for solutions.

After nearly two years of searching, they found their partner in CASA, a local nonprofit with a focus on similar apartments. CASA had just purchased 6 acres of land in Raleigh with their own dream of how to end homelessness on a larger scale, in memory of their longtime CEO Debra King. Thus, King’s Ridge was born: a public-private campaign to develop 100 permanent, supportive apartments designated to end homelessness with onsite supportive services such as integrated physical and behavioral health, case management and more.

Set to begin construction in 2022, King’s Ridge will reduce Wake County’s homeless count by more than 10%.


About the Presenters


Fraley Marshall grew up in Raleigh. She has witnessed its explosive growth and seen the challenges it presents for the most vulnerable among us. Fraley believes that too many in our community are suffering from a lack of opportunity and access. Despite their best efforts, they are swimming upstream in a system where there is far more demand for resources than there is supply. She is passionate about affordable housing and knows that our community suffers from a lack of it. She says, “I am thrilled at the prospect of sharing King’s Ridge with others and inviting them on the journey to dream with us.”


Missy Hatley  joined CASA in January 2014 to create their philanthropic program and advance the affordable housing mission. She started her fundraising career more than 18 years ago, as a staff member at One80 Place, a homeless shelter, soup kitchen and health clinic in Charleston, SC. Missy is a passionate advocate for the role that donors can play in creating opportunities and lasting change for their neighbors.
