When the hit ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition decided to come to Knoxville, it was an exciting event! The Watson family was provided with a brand new home because of their work with Restoration House of East Tennessee, a group that helps low-income, single mothers who need a place to stay.
The Watsons left their jobs a few years ago to start the nonprofit organization. They have three children, all adopted, and are passionate about helping children and single mothers get back on their feet.
Their old house was falling down around them, with crumbling foundation, cracking walls and the like. You can see their new home in the video posted above…and sense the crowd’s excitement as they see it for the first time.
Our team at Fulghum MacIndoe was happy to lend a hand with this project by donating civil engineering services. FMA co-founder Billy Fulghum was featured in his alumni news magazine for his work on the project!
It feels great to live and work in a community where folks care about each other! Ninjaneers know a thing or two about what matters and helping folks like the Watsons carry out their mission of helping others matters to us!
