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. Major upgrades may include exterior and interior painting, landscaping, A/C and heating, new flooring, kitchen cabinets, countertops, appliances, bathrooms, furniture, and electronics.
In addition, depending on the family’s needs, other improvements may include smart home technology, lighting, ceiling fans, closets, windows, window treatments, solar, whole home generator, security system, water purification, patio enclosure, outdoor patio furniture, and lawn care equipment.
Plus, certain homes may receive upgrades such as storm shutters, electrical and plumbing repairs, garage reno, epoxy surfacing, new gutters and/or gutter protection, roofing, fencing, and special needs or requests by the homeowner.
To complete the designer makeover, finishing touches may include linens, bedding, pillows, lamps, clocks, shelving, treasures, artwork, mirrors, plants, vases, and other home décor.
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.
