SLB&T signage w Burgess Family

The Burgess Family

Passion Burgess was shot in a drive-by shooting in 2005 at the age of 18, leaving her a paraplegic. She was pregnant at the time and gave birth prematurely during her long and painful recovery. Passion has always had ambition. She picked herself up and got through therapy. Being a new mom with new challenges, she decided to take back her life. She returned to school and finished her AA degree. In 2015, Passion graduated with another AA and a Bachelor of Arts degree. Passion is currently working at the school district as a substitute teacher and loves it!

Passion found that it is hard to find handicap accessible housing, so she applied to the Habitat Homeownership program. The first time, her income did not meet the qualifications, but that did not deter her from trying again and being accepted into the program! Two of her biggest inspirations are her son Elijah, who has had to help with basic daily living, and her sister Peaches, who passed away recently. Peaches always said, “Once you take the DIS out of DISABILITY, you have the ABILITY to do anything!”

The Habitat house is going to change their lives. Passion will be able to get around the house without limitations! Elijah (12) and Frederick (7) will have more freedom to be kids. Life will be simpler. The neighborhood will be safe and it will give a them a normalcy they have never experienced.
