“The celebrities we partner with are incredibly genuine — they really want to do something kind for the people who have given so much to them and others,” says Jonathan. “Their dedication to these special renovations is so moving, and I think that’s why we all ugly cry at every episode.”

“With each new season, we continue to be amazed at the celebrities’ strong design eye,” says Drew. “They all put in the time to make the renovations perfect for the recipients, and working on these projects together is both fun and challenging. And, above all, the stories are just so heartfelt.”

In the premiere episode, Heidi Klum will express her appreciation to Lucia, her housekeeper of 17 years who she describes as family. Drew, Jonathan and Heidi will give Lucia the fabulous and functional home of her dreams featuring a comfortable yet chic open concept living area and a large kitchen ideal for family gatherings.
