On this week’s episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Ty Pennington and his team once again aid a family actively involved in helping others. The Augustin family from Keller, Texas were victims of a flood that destroyed their home and not-for-profit photography studio.

Amber Augustin’s third child Lane was born prematurely. The challenges surrounding Lane’s birth caused emotional and financial struggles for the family. Knowing firsthand the difficulties faced by families with premature babies, Amber was inspired to create “Tiny Works of Heart,” which is a volunteer photography business.

“Tiny Works of Heart” takes pictures of babies born in the neonatal intensive care unit. Because sometimes N.I.C.U. babies don’t survive, it is important to families to have pictures of their babies. “Tiny Works of Heart” takes photos of families with their child. Amber also works with an organization that helps to provide hope and comfort to families during this difficult time.

In 2007 on Father’s Day, the Augustin family home was ravaged by flood waters. The home was so badly damaged that it along with Amber’s photography studio had to be destroyed. Ty Pennington, his design team, local builder Wall Homes and hundreds of volunteers will help to rebuild the Augustin family home and photography studio.

While the home is being rebuilt, the Augustin family will enjoy a Hilton vacation in Hawaii. The design team for this episode consists of designers Paul DiMeo, Eduardo Xol, Tracy Hutson and John Littlefield. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition airs on Sunday, March 1 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET on ABC.
