Montgomery family's 'Extreme Home Makeover'

Meet the Jordan family Meet the Jordan family

Montgomery, AL., -- The lives of Montgomery residents Monica and Brady Jordan, their daughter and three grandchildren changed forever when they were surprised by Ty Pennington and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's design team who announced they would be the recipients of a new home in just seven days! Aronov Homes was chosen by ABC to help give this deserving family a new quality constructed and energy efficient home.

Faced with the devastating losses of a daughter in 1995 to domestic violence and then a son eight years later to a drunk driver, Monica and Brady Jordan responded not with bitterness or self-pity but with dedicated passionate service to their community. They're now raising their three grandchildren: grandson Miles (15), granddaughter Shan (14) and grandson Keiunta (11). The Jordan's are strong advocates of Mothers Against Drunk Driving and open their home to more than 100 youngsters each week who need a safe place to hang out. Monica began working for the State of Alabama's Crime Victims Commission and later became a prominent speaker for M.A.D.D. by holding meetings in their home.

Daughter Brittany, a senior at the University of Alabama, aspires to be a pediatrician and volunteers at a rape crisis center.  Brady, a printer, and his wife also make sure their home is a welcoming and safe haven where kids in the neighborhood drop by to eat, sleep, socialize and be mentored under their roof. In doing this, their house has gone without repair in years. Their bathroom leaks into their kitchen and some of their siding has blown off. Thousands of meals have been cooked in a kitchen that is falling apart, with no overhead light, rotting counters and a stove that barely works.

The Jordan's dream of having a safe home but cannot bear the thought of turning away teenagers or having to stop volunteering for M.A.D.D. to save enough money for repairs. They have given so much for their cause and their community; M.A.D.D and Alabama Police Department feel it is time for the Jordan's to get something back.  Now it is up to Ty and his designers to step in and help this family who have devoted themselves to protecting and guiding countless others.

Aronov Homes joinined forces with the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's design team and the Montgomery community at large to give back to Monica and Brady, who are considered heroes in our community for their selfless contributions to helping others. In one-week, the Jordan Family got a beautiful new home where they can live safely and create memories to last a lifetime.
