Now accepting applications for our inaugural VIBE Home Makeover project in Tampa Bay, Florida for 2022-23! VIBE is excited to announce that the first year’s project is a special ‘Holiday Edition’ theme, reflecting the spirit of holiday giving.
One family-in-need will be selected to receive a $150,000 VIBE designer home makeover to be completed during the Christmas season of 2023. More than 20 exterior and interior improvements will be made by our showcase partners. Core upgrades may include Paint (Exterior + Interior), Landscaping, HVAC, Windows, Solar, Flooring, Kitchen Cabinets OR Refacing, Countertops, Bathrooms, Appliances + Electronics, Furniture, and Mattresses + Bedding.
In addition, depending on the family’s needs, other improvements may include Smart Home, Security System, Closets, Window Treatments, Lighting (Exterior + Interior), Ceiling Cans, Water Purification, Whole House Generator, Gutters + Protection, Outdoor Furniture, Fencing, and Pavers.
Plus, certain homes may receive upgrades such as Spa, Lanai, Outdoor Shed, Lawn Care Equipment, Garage Reno, Epoxy Surfacing, Electrical, Plumbing, Roofing, Storm Shutters, Custom Carpentry, and Special Needs/Requests.
To complete the designer makeover, finishing touches may include Artwork, Décor, Mirrors, Plants, Vases, Linens, Bedding, Lamps, Clocks, Shelving, and Throw Pillows, all combined with the Homeowner’s Treasures.
In all, the lucky recipient will receive a VIBE Home Makeover of more than 20 of these improvements, transforming their home into a truly beautiful and functional living environment. (Disclosure: Each recipient will not receive all of the noted improvements, but rather, approximately 20 listed upgrades, plus finishing touches, that are conducive to their living situation.)
To nominate yourself, or someone in need, visit the VIBE Home Makeover website (www.VibeHomeMakeover.com) and request a nomination application. Share the story about why the person you are nominating would be a good candidate.
We are seeking a family, couple, or single person-in-need. Household income should be no more than 300% of federal poverty level ($82,250 for a family of four), although families with health or other challenging conditions may be eligible with higher household incomes.
Candidates for the VIBE Home Makeover must be a Florida homeowner, residing in Hillsborough, Pinellas, or Pasco county. Don’t delay, as the earlier you submit a nomination, the better chance you have. All VIBE improvements will be completed during a 12- day community-build timeline, October 30 through November 11, 2023.
Funding for VIBE Home Makeovers originates from project partners, who contribute financial resources, home related products, and employee volunteer support.
