Synopsis


A single mother at age 15, Alisha King understands the importance of having a support system of family and friends during parenthood. She received help while raising Justin and was able to work several part time jobs and attend college. Her dream has always been to give single parents safe, nurturing and affordable daycare that provides clothing, food, overnight care, mentoring and constant education to the children. Her marriage to co-worker Curtis King in 1997 led to the birth of Kirkland and a new residence in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she finally opened "Step By Step Home Daycare." Though Alisha and Curtis have been through many financial hardships, they always managed to give back to their community and extend their daycare system in their home after hours sometimes, free of charge. However the condition of the home is putting their daycare and their daughter Laila's health in jeopardy. The mold has sent her to the hospital several times with asthma attacks, and it makes for an unhealthy environment for the rest of the children when combined with the cramped quarters, and lack of heat, air conditioning or gas. It's up to Ty and his designers to step in save this home and daycare center.

While Ty and the designers, local builder American Heartland Homebuilder and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home, the King family will go on vacation to Puerto Rico.
