Katy says "Many years ago I found myself a single, homeless mom after leaving my abusive, drug addicted husband. This time period of my life inspired me to found and start Seasons of Hope. Using my own experiences and past I implemented programs to help the working poor with diapers, toiletries, feminine hygiene, Christmas and back to school assistance."

Her motto in life is : "Let your smile change the world, but don't let the world change your smile."
