ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition searching for deserving families

Do you know a family whose home deserves an Extreme Makeover, or a family who simply deserves a home?  If so, the producers of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition want to hear from you.
Ty Pennington and his crew have been all across the map and now they want to drive that famous bus to South Carolina.
“We are looking for the deserving people and inspiring families that America can really root for,” says Supervising Casting Directors Kelly Mooney and David Shumsky.
What does it take to be picked for an Extreme Makeover? “We’re looking for those special people who have amazing strength of character and never give up. Whether it’s keeping their chin up in really tough circumstances or going out of their way to help others. We want to help people whose stories have really affected their community or made a big difference in other people’s lives.” Mooney added: “There are a lot of people who are heroes to those around them because of the way they inspire others and quietly serve their communities on a daily basis.”
The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition producers are looking for families whose homes desperately need to be rebuilt. “We really want to help families whose homes present major problems for the family, those big issues that affect the family’s quality of life on a daily basis. We want to find deserving people who just don’t have the resources, ability, or time to fix those serious issues without our help.”
This season, Extreme Makeover is also looking for families who do not own their own homes, so long as land is available through other sources, a nonprofit, city or county.
Nominations may be submitted by the family or by a member of their community. Each nomination must include the names and ages of every member of the household along with a description of the major challenges within the home, and a short description of the family story.  Anyone submitting a nomination should be sure to explain why the nominated family is deserving, heroic, and/or a great role model for their community. If possible, include recent photos of the family and home.  All nominations must include a contact phone number.
Please send nominations to castingsouthcarolina@emhe.tv.
The deadline for nominations is Monday, October 24. Don’t delay!
