| From

CLEVELAND, Ohio, March 12 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- NewsChannel 5 and ABC need your help! Do you know someone whose home deserves an Extreme Makeover? If so, the producers of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition want to hear from you. Host Ty Pennington and his crew have been all across the map and are ready to drive that bus into a northeast Ohio neighborhood. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition airs on WEWS NewsChannel 5 each Sunday at 8PM.

WEWS NewsChannel 5What does it take to be picked for an Extreme Makeover?
The show producers are in search of real heroes - people that have amazing strength and who have put their own needs aside to help someone else.

They don't want to tear down a nice looking house - they want to see houses that look like they might fall down on their own!
