TLG Gives 2017 Home Transformation

BreannaScholarshipBreanna is a recent high school graduate who is excited to be headed to college. Unlike most of the Class of 2017, Breanna is confined to a wheelchair. Despite her handicap, she doesn’t let that stop her from doing great things, including recently winning a $1,000 scholarship from the Aldine Education Foundation. Breanna needs help with many day-to-day tasks, so Jessica stopped working a few years ago to devote herself to Breanna full-time.

When Jessica’s husband passed away from a massive heart attack 2 years ago, her son, Michael, moved back home so that he could work to provide for his family while attending school closer to home.

Norris Family 2Though Jessica’s home has the basic handicap accessible necessities, there are many features that can be added to give Breanna more independence. This is where TLG Gives comes in! During the 2017 Home Transformation week, TLG Gives, with the help of their generous sponsors, will be adding functions to the Norris home that will give Breanna more independence in the future.

We were ecstatic, surprised, and overwhelmed with excitement [when we found out we were named the 2017 TLG Gives family],” said Jessica. “We couldn’t believe that we had actually been chosen. Being on a fixed income and not having a lot of time has really delayed any home remodeling, so we’re overjoyed.”

“To me, this project just means improving the lives of a family that truly deserves more than life has handed them,” said Sydney Kempler, Client Care Manager at The Loken Group, and Chairman of the 2017 TLG Gives committee. “If we can accomplish that, we’ve stayed true to our mission statement and our promise to the community.”
The home transformation started on June 19th, and will continue through the month of June. To make a donation or track the home transformation progression, visit the TLG Gives website or follow TLG Gives on Facebook .
