Producers of the ABC reality series "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" are looking for Long Island families whose homes desperately need to be rebuilt.
"We really want to help families whose homes present major problems for the family," said supervising producer Rebecca Shumsky. "We want to find deserving people who just don't have the resources, ability, or time to fix those serious issues without our help."
To be eligible, a family must own their own single-family home and be able to show producers how a makeover will make a difference in their lives.
Families should e-mail a short description of their story to: CastLongIsland@gmail.com.
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. Anyone submitting a nomination should be sure to explain why the nominated family is deserving or a role model for their community. All nominations must include a contact phone number.
The deadline for nominations is March 15.
