An ABC program is seeking “deserving families,” including veterans, to receive much-needed repairs/renovations to their homes.

ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” which received the National Commander’s Public Relations Award during the 2007 Washington Conference, is looking for deserving families and individuals to receive home makeovers.

The show’s producers are looking for soldiers, teachers, firemen, parents – people with “amazing strength of character and who put their own needs aside to help others,” according to a release by the show. The producers are looking for families whose houses need major alterations or repair- homes that present serious problems for the family and affect the family’s quality of life.

To be eligible, a family must own their own single-family home and be able to show producers how a makeover will make a huge difference in their lives.

Nominations/submissions must include:The names and ages of each member of the household;

* A description of the major challenges within the home;

* Explanation of why this family is deserving, or a positive role model in their community;

* Photos of the family and a photo of the home; and

* A contact phone number.
