Change the World 2009, St. Louis: The Makeover

Monica Pedersen, Carter Oosterhouse and hundreds of helpers transform a home for returning veterans in St. Louis.

  • Before: The Windsor Transitional House has a big mission — offering spiritual support, transportation, job placement services and aid for substance abuse for returning veterans — but it needs a lot of work.
  • After: Fresh paint, rehabbed steps, and decorative touches give this home curb appeal and a welcoming entrance.
  • Before: This room serves as a storage area, but there's a better use for it...
  • After: From lovely beadboard to repaired ceiling, the old storage room has become a beautiful community room, where the residents can gather for relaxation and fellowship. © 2010 Scripps Networks, L.L.C. All rights reserved
