About Us

SERVING THE HOUSTON COMMUNITY FOR OVER A DECADE

In 2000, Norman Mitchell and Darcy Padgett left their successful entertainment careers in California to fight the epidemic of HIV in Norman’s hometown of Houston, TX. Bee Busy, Inc. was born out of their first effort, a two-person educational play, and has evolved into a 20-person organization with award-winning testing and education programs. We provide HIV, Syphilis, and Hepatitis C testing, in-school sexual health and decision-making classes, a summer camp for local children, and various services for our neighbors in need, all absolutely free. We are committed to working with the community to create a stronger, healthier Houston.

OUR MISSION
Bee Busy’s mission is to build a strong, healthy community by enhancing the quality of life for vulnerable individuals and families in at risk communities.

OUR VISION 
The vision of Bee Busy Learning Academy, Inc. is that Houston will become a place where every citizen has access to all the services they need; but where that is not possible, every individual, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic circumstance and physical or mental capabilities, will have unfettered access to high quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination.
