Extreme Makeover: Home Edition – Financial Contributions Needed - Kemah
With construction underway, one of the main things lacking at this juncture is financial assistance. The EM:HE project is funded through donated and non-donated materials. Right now, contributions are desperately needed.
“We are honored to be a part of this project,” says Andrea Urbina, Shields’ daughter, “and we are asking everyone who can to please give from their hearts so we will have all the donations we need to cover materials, money to pay off the Beach family’s mortgage, scholarships and other essentials.”
Listen in to Talk of the Bay.

About the Family:
In 23 years of marriage, Larry, 40 and Melissa, 40, have fostered over 80 children that other adoption agencies were not able to place. They have four biological children and nine adopted children. They include Chris (23,), Michael (21), Jose (20), Mikala (18), Paul (14), Faith (13), Hope (9), Justin (8), Jacob (4), Grace (4), Jeremiah (23 months), Mercy (22 months) and Cody (19) currently serving in the Marine Corps in Afghanistan. Larry and Melissa decided to start adopting after seeing that so many were not being placed in homes.
Due to water damage from Hurricane Ike, the Beach family home is unlivable and they are residing in a travel trailer on their property. Therefore, they have been unable to adopt additional children. But all that is about to change!!

They are the only builders in this part of the country building high energy efficient homes (without solar or wind generated power) that produce very low electric bills. Their homes are built within 30 to 45 days, below the average construction cost. Their real challenge is to unite all builders as one, while bringing together all county and city emergency management teams so that communities can be rebuilt, not only in coastal regions but throughout the entire United States.
