ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has extended its deadline in the search for area families in need of a home makeover.
The deadline for nominations has been extended to April 23.
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, heroic, and/or a great role model for their community. If possible, include a recent photo of the family.
All nominations must include a phone number.

Each episode of the show is self-contained and features a race against time to complete a project that would ordinarily take at least four months, involving a team of designers, contractors and several hundred workers who have just seven days to rebuild an entire property, every single room of the house and the exterior and landscaping.
The show's host is Ty Pennington and has won back-to-back Emmy awards as Best Reality Program (non-competitive). It is in its seventh season overall.
