�Jones Family� -- The Jones family of Brandon, MS, who have spent their lives giving to others, will now themselves receive a spectacular new home in just seven days courtesy of �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,� SUNDAY, APRIL 8 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Sabrena Jones is a single mother raising three children -- 18-year-old Marjon, 17-year-old Mardaireus and 9-year-old Marjiya. As a practicing nurse at a local hospital, Sabrena has never had time to focus on herself. Using her background in nursing, she opened up a medical apparel shop which, after financial setbacks, she now runs out of her living room. In addition to this, she runs her own clothing donation center, which led to Sabrena�s being selected to serve on a Hurricane Katrina relief committee at her church. To date, her organization has supplied hundreds of thousands of dollars to families and organizations hurt by the devastating natural disaster. The Jones family put serving their community first; they involve themselves with such charitable organizations as Toys for Tots, Mission Mississippi and many more.

While she�s out serving her community, Sabrena�s house is falling apart. Without financial means, the Jones family have been unable to make the home repairs needed to bring the house up to par. Sabrena�s children are her pride and joy and she always puts them first. Marjon, Mardaireus and Marjiya are hard working students and athletes who love their mother more than anything in the world. The rough living conditions have not set them back, but repair to their house would certainly improve their lives!

In this episode of �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,� Ty and the gang will build Sabrena and her family the home of their dreams, where they can all live comfortably and have some extra space to run a business and help out people in need.

While Ty and the designers, local builder Shoemaker Homes and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home in just seven days, the Jones family will go on vacation in Florida.

The design team for this episode of �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Eduardo Xol, John Littlefield, Michael Moloney and Paige Hemmis.

The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It�s executive-produced by Denise Cramsey. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
