The Lutz Family

The Lutz Family, Extreme Makeover: Home EditionThe Lutz family was featured on Season 8 of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition.  Unable to have any children of their own, loving couple Grace and John Lutz gave their hearts to 18 adopted kids in all, including seven with Down Syndrome. After the couple passed away, their daughter Kathleen, gladly gave up her career and came home to take care of her six Down siblings who currently range in age from 20 to 25 years old. Kathleen unexpectedly had a grand mal seizure and was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. Her brother John Jr. sacrificed his successful career as a gymnastics coach to move home and care for his sister and other siblings. But the crumbling condition of their 40-year-old home had become a concern to the point where minor repairs were no longer an option.

We were honored to be asked by the executives at ABC to be a part of another incredible build. Take a look at some of the pictures from the renovation as well as the Lutz Family themselves. You also have the opportunity below to watch a video of a pep rally we held at Suffolk County Park to get the community ready and excited for the build.
