Be like Ty Pennington and spread the word.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has already been to South Carolina, by my count, three times, and now they're looking to help out one Palmetto State family in need of a new home once again.

Who are they 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," said Supervising Casting Directors Kelly Mooney.

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 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, but 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, or a great role model for their community. If possible, nominations should include recent photos of the family and home and all nominations must include a contact phone number.

The deadline to nominate is Friday, October 21. Send nominations to castingsouthcarolina@emhe.tv and be sure to read the application guidelines.
