  1. After years of giving up my time to help anyone who needs me. If its to baby sit or to move in as a live in assistant I would drop what I was doing to help. I'm the kind of person that doesn't like to ask for help but I need help now. I live in a small town in North Carolina. I moved because my brother needed the space. The house I moved to had no water when I first got here, I have mold in every room of my house every floor has to be replaced. Because of my Heath I'm scared to work I really need help.

  2. Hey Abc my name is Nothando Mkhize from South Africa please come n help us to rebuild our home we seriously in need love , hope n dedication comes a long miles we will appreciate yo support

  3. Hello. My name is Shari. I don't know if I'm too late or not having just seen this. Not sure if we would even qualify. My husband got hurt on his job about 15 years ago and has been on disability ever since. I've tried to work when I could to help make ends meet but I have developed neuroma and unable to stand on concrete floors anymore but unable to draw a check. Our home is in bad repair. Need a roof. The roof is leaking all over. With the roof leaking its causing mold. It has no insulation. No heating and air. The windows are all old and let's in the cold air. The heat we have is the fire place and it doesn't heat the whole house. We are not able to fix the house on my husband disability. We really need help.

  4. To Whom it May Concern,

    My name is Lauren. I am a single mom in Bristol, Vermont. Over the past five years, I have focused on creating a better life for myself and my daughters, walking both of my parents through their battles with Cancer, losing both of them to the illness, graduating from Castleton University with my nursing license, and leaving my husband of nine years along the way. We have gone from moving every six months, living a life where my husband would spend all of his check and leave me to find ways to pay the bills and buy food, to building credit and purchasing a home of our own. I am so grateful for all of the blessings that have come our way, including having the determination to get through nursing school, acquire a job at the leading facility in the region, and now acting as charge nurse on my unit. I am currently finishing my baccalaureate degree and plan to move into my doctorate degree as soon as I finish.

    The reason for my lengthy letter is this. I purchased this home three years ago. I consider it to be one of my greatest accomplishments, with the exception of my daughters. The house needs some SERIOUS updating and TLC. I have done some projects on my own, including fixing the foundation and furnace, replacing the pantry, etc. As the girls grow, the house seems to shrink! I am in desperate need of ways to create more space and replace what is broken. I would love the input of the team, to make this amazing little house more suitable for us.

    Thank you all so much for your time.

    My best,
    Lauren Williams

  5. Hi I am leaving a comment because I would like to be considered for a extreme home makeover. Im a single mother of two sons and a dog. In 2015 my husband and I were attacked in the dark at our home by a masked robber. That night the robber did not succeed in getting any money but he or she took my husband's life. By the grace of God I survived. But life as my children and I knew it to be was destroyed. We were force to move from our 3 bedroom home. Because we were too afraid to live there. Since then I have worked and attended school to take care of my children on my own. In 2016 I purchased a piece of land that belonged to my husband's father at an auction before he died in 2013. I just wanted my children to have a piece of their father in some sort of a physical way. However this land needed to have utilities ran before we could build a home there to live. So I rented a house for the last two years that depleted all of my financial resources. With that being said I did all that I knew to do. I had a yard sale and I down sized my home. The funds that I raised I purchased a generator and took an RV trailer that my husban left us before he passed away and I moved with my children and dog to our land. Ive been praying and meditating on a biblical scripture. Proverbs 11:9 reads through knowledge shall the just be delivered. I got a call from my sister today and she told me that I should apply to TV show and tell them my story. She felt that we had been through so much and lost so much that maybe someone could help us. So I saw this link on line and I thought through knowledge shall the just be delivered. And I replied because the things that we need are so extreme that I can not do it alone. We would like to be cosidered for a extreme home makeover!

  8. Hey there, I'm Kelly from the UK. I've never done anything like this before. I've got 27 health problems which few of them are damaging me. My mum is very poorly too with fibromyalgia and she's my main carer. I'm always in and out of hospital for tests and my mum puts up with so much stress and worry. I'd never trade my mum for any other. She's one in a million. We've been through so much different trials with things that get thrown our way. Things do get very tough and even between me and my mum cause of things so having this extreme home makeover would make such a big difference and would show my mum how much I appreciate her

  9. The following is a story about my Mother, Faith Davis…..
    OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – A contractor who cheated customers in four counties and two states has been sentenced for some of those crimes.
    Timothy Main promised to finish projects for multiple customers, taking the money and never making good on his word.
    "He took the money and then went and had a good time. It's not right," customer Faith Davis said.
    Three of the customers paid Main a total of $70,000 to receive little or no work completed.
    "There's just list after list of people, so when you have a problem you tray and resolve it. You don't just keep doing it, and he kept doing it," customer Michelle Siders said.
    Before sentencing, Main promised to make things right.
    "I can take my punishment, and once I get out I plan to try and get to these people that I owe," Main said.
    He took away one homeowner's deck and left her without a home addition.
    Now, there's no way to get out of one side of the house and Davis has a $40,000 loan to pay off. The 66-year-old has put retirement on hold.
    "It's a lot of sleepless nights, figuring out the finances every day and how I'm going to pay it back and how I'm going to get the deck back on," Davis said.

    Main received a sentence of three to five years in prison.
    "He can't hurt anybody else. He can't make anyone else cry. He can't disrupt any more families," Siders said about the sentence.
    The victims received justice, but little hope of getting money back on projects that will cost them double to complete.
    The prison term Main received on Monday will be added on to a four year sentence he received in Douglas County.
    He also faces similar theft by deception charges in Council Bluffs.
    In the last 10 years (approximately) my mother (whom is a charge nurse at a nursing home – over 15 years.. has taken care of my father (diabetes, kidney/pancreas transplant) whom has passed away (ps….my father built the house she is currently living in and lord knows the issues that have arisen because he was not a contractor and he was a sick man and still forged thru…he did the best he could), her mother has passed away (whom she is extremely close with), her two dogs passed away (whom she had for companionship and conformation when my Dad passed away, she has had one hip replaced in July and the other in September (which means she hasn't worked since June because of the surgeries) then she has had this contractor this looming for the last year AND just today her Jeep has stopped working (it was towed to the shop and hopefully isn't a lot of money because..you can see from the story of the contractor..there is no way she can afford this. My mother is such a wonderful person…she is such a caring person and has taken care of the elderly with total compassion. I only wish she could get some return for her kindness and dedication that she has shown all of us.
    Thank you for your consideration.

  10. Good day.I do not know if you will be able to do a home make over in south africa but I will take that chance.
    My parents are loving people and have worked their whole lives for me and my 3 other siblings.When my father retired he went to invest his retirement money by a financial broker and this guy was a fraudulent and my father lost most of his money.
    Things are really tight with them now not having much money. My mother has been diagnosed with parkisins and my father has just found out 6 months ago that he has stage 4 bone cancer.he was in the hospital for just over 5 weeks and is at home now. my father always tried to keep the house in tact by fixing what ever breaks but now he cannot walk anymore due to the cancer and he is in a wheel chair at the moment but the house is too small to move in and he has difficulties like going to the bath room and trying to bath because he cant pick up his legs high enough to get into the bath my mother battles to wash him. She is taking a lot of stress trying to do everything for him but she too is not well.us children are all married now live on our own but we still try to help them where we can but financially it is taking strain on us all. If they could win a home makeover and make their house a bit bigger just for my father to be able to move around and to be able to bath by himself and not with help I think that he will really appreciate it.
    They are the type of people who never ask for anything for them selfs and will give their last bit of money or food to help someone else.

    I hope I can be able to do something for them so they can be able to rest a little bit and take some of the stress off of them that is my biggest wish to be able to do something for them to say thank you for raising us children into beautiful grown ups.

  11. My name is Jackie Bearden. I am writing on behalf of my mother in law Karen. She just recently lost her mother in in the last 6 years she's lost her father and her husband she has so much that she wants to get done at home she was able to get her porch done but she's just been so overwhelmed being everybody's caretaker. Including taking my husband my son and IN after we had nowhere else to go she needs a break a big break we don't have a lot of money but next year we'd like to send her somewhere just to have a vacation in a time to relax. We are actually at the funeral home right now I'm watching my son my husband and I have wanted to sign her up for this for a really really long time period she has been there so much and has such a big heart and this would just mean the world to her and be such a big surprise for her as well please consider us for this edition

  12. I am writing for my brother Christopher. He is a new father with a young wife. He has struggled, as a good portion of us do here in eastern Kentucky, to find work that pays him enough just to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. He lives with his his mother (my step-mother), in a mobile that is 40 years old and falling apart. Our father died last year of black lung and Ruth, his mother, has fallen into a deep depression over the loss of her husband of 37 years. Please help them do something with this mobile home. The bathrooms don't work. The windows are about to fall out of the trailer. There are holes in the floors and ceilings….I would like my brother to see that sometimes when we need help God does provide. All they need is a safe, clean, and fully operational home so that the money they do manage to make in a month isn't going to repairs they can't afford to make. So that his new 6 week old son can have room to grow and crawl and walk, and his young wife can learn to be the caretaker of something worth taking care of, and my brother can see that not everything he does is all for nothing because we are never going to be able to climb our way out of these hills and wash the coal dust off us.

  13.

We are a normal-working family and my husband and agonize over the well-being of both of our mothers daily. ABC Please select our family to receive the Extreme Makeover so that we will have a "PLACE FOR MOM" right here in our single family home. Thank you ABC Humbly Submitted, Annie Willis

  14. Our home is roughly 24 x 24 in each level. The basement leeks due to foundation not sealed properly need new septic system I need wheelchair accessible bedroom bathroom combo with closet kitchen dinning area living room area ramp into the house floors need to be fixed etc we live in an acre land. The house was built by my husband's grandmother so he won't move so the only thing that can be done is to modify the home. I would also like to have a couple of rooms so we could take in a couple of teenagers so the could stay here while they are going to college after they get out of foster care also called transitional housing we would like to be foster parents, I have a lot of health issues so I am on disability, and because the house is so small I use the living room as a bedroom and am stuck in the one room I need my independence it would be nice to make my own meals and cook for my husband use my electric power chair to get around and if the house is enlarged I could. Could you please help.

  15. Hi,

    I am writing to nominate my parents house for a makeover. they are both extremely busy, with 3 of biological children and 4 foster children they have their hands full. They would do anything for anyone around and help so many people. but because of all the kids and the consistent running around the yard and house have been a little left out. For them to have the chance of having a house makeover would really be one of the greatest gifts for them.

  16. Please help me. My boyfriend is 63 worked hard all his life. Has a beautiful spot on Lake Ontario. He lives as a bachelor has a house approx. 900 square feet. He has lived here for 10 years but the house although has amazing potential which he has been working on as well as me helping him, but I feel like we are getting nowhere. He is an amazing person and gives the shirt off his back for anyone except himself. He would rather give to someone else even when he has nothing. Please give this great man a break. Thank you.

  17. Just over a year ago I moved out to the farm belonging to my friend of 30 years. Her parents had passed one year after the other and after the period of caring for them, in addition to raising 3 children single-handedly, the property had fallen "back to nature" as we like to call it. I've done a fair job reclaiming the cosmetics of her parent's place in the upper 40 but there are many integral structural issues outside the scope of our ability. We had just begun making plans as to how the next phase would address the overhaul on her place at the lower 40. On October 17th a fire started at the base of our main driveway. It spread quickly up the hill taking out the garage, 2 vehicles, and about 10 of our 20 acres of livestock corral behind the barn in the lower 40. The family home was saved but is badly affected by water and smoke damage. She and the children are now in residence downstairs and will remain until their place is habitable. I'm not sure how emergency disaster clean up usually works but things are moving glacially slow. None of the local contractors seem to be calling back. Maybe fire clean up is more of a hardship than any of them are interested in taking at the moment. It just feels like she's so exhausted by moving from one astronomically huge crisis to the next that she's aged 20 years over the last 10. To have your crew descend and work your magic with the ease of execution you're all so amazing at might help take that 'when is the next shoe gonna drop?' look out of her eyes. In any case, I had to try.

  18. My name is Jerry Follins I live with my mother and father in law My mother has as house which about 20 years old in need of some upgrades. My father in law has both his legs amputated and can longer live in the home the way it is designed, basically it need to be redesign so he can maneuver around the house with his wheel chair please help

  19. Good evening! My name is Natalia. My ten-year-old daughter and I both love animals and have 6 rescued cats and 2 dogs (one of which we recently found while on vacation on the beach in Puerto Rico and brought her back with us to Missouri) . Unable to keep all of our “petting zoo” in the two bedroom apartment, we had bought a beautiful, very old, three story fixer upper, which we hope to move in with our pets at some point. My daughter Veronika, myself and most importantly all our four-legged furry friends would’ve been indefinitely grateful to win the opportunity of moving in to the bigger space with the yard ❤️

  20. I am writing for my hard working husband Steve who tries so hard to get things done in our home ,but just never gets to finish properly.Yes I understand there are many husbands and partners that never finish works at home.My husband works hours are all different ranging from 5.30am_9.00 and when he came still as to update his paperwork.Weekends he also catching up with reports inbetween trying to complete home projects.
    But now he also has to look after me as I have been off work for medical reason and I know he is putting on such a stronge front and keeps going.
    This probably is not a good enough reason to you but to me he is my rock and this would be such an amazing way for me to say thank you and spend some much needed time together.
    Thank you for taking time to actually read this

  22. Hi my name is Barbara Ford and I'm writing this on behalf of my foster mother. She's an amazing woman who at 77yrs she still teaching parenting classes in the jail and for parenting institute. She must have fostered 60 or more girls till she legally adopted my foster sister's son and she no longer took in girls. I first went to her home in 1988 and I can honestly say of all the places I'd gone to her home was where I felt the most loved and welcome. She put up with so much from her girls we put her through the ringer yet she was always there for us her love never wavered. She's been awarded foster parent of the year twice even had an article printed in the paper about her outstanding dedication to helping young girls with success stories. I know that when I'd ran away and was taken by a man 30yrs older she wouldn't rest till I was found and home safe. Even when the police department wouldn't help due to my reputation of being a runaway she'd made missing flyers and plastered our town with them. She refused to take them down when police told her too and she refused to give up. It wasn't till the authorities realized that she wouldn't give up that they took her seriously and joined in on the search for me. Eventually after following up on every lead they detained the man who'd taken me and he'd said where he last left me that I was found safe. Being the loving caring foster mom she'd never given up hope and when she could of turned her back on me like everyone else did she didn't. I won't go into details of my ordeal but I will tell you that without my foster mom I'd have never gotten through that and throughout my life she's been there when no one was she's been my rock and I love her so dearly that I'd be lost without her. So the reason I'm contacting the show is to give her what she so deserves and that's a nice home to live in. Currently her home is in shambles so much so it would condemned if the city we're to see it. It's not her fault she's got two of my foster nephews who are adults living in the home and let me tell you they've no clue as to how to use a garbage can. There is a small pathetic leading from door to bathroom and one bedroom the rest is littered with garbage and things unused, paperwork etc. You can't even use the kitchen let alone get to the stove or sink. The refrigerator is full of rotting food and disgusting, the ceiling in kitchen is caving in and there are rats living happy healthy lives among the filth. This has gone on far too long and the last several months my foster mom's been staying in a rented apartment with my foster dad and one of my nephew's because her failing health she's been forced to find suitable and safe living environment. But I want nothing more than for her to be able to come home to a place she's proud of, a place she feels comfortable in. She doesn't even have anyone over because she's so ashamed. I know she couldn't live with the embarrassment but would love the outcome. There is no one more deserving of her horrific home being made beautiful again. She's owned and lived in this house over 30yrs and stresses daily over what this mess has done to her life. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Sincerely B. Adaya F.
