  • A series classic

    The Akana family: Ben, Momi and their children Keahi, Kuulei, Maka and Poli.

    Honolulu, Hawaii is the farthest to date that the team has traveled to help out a deserving family.

    Momi was the first in her family to go on welfare.

    Momi created Keiki o ka'Aina, a non-profit group that helps out poor families. She ran this group out of her own house for many years. Through it she was able to help 9000 families!

    The Akanas live next to a river. A major flood washed away more than half of the home's foundation. The rest of the home could be washed away at any point in time, especially during the rain season.
  • Great show as two-parters are the best!

    Again don't you just love this show a lot. As it shows that these people, Ty & company, not only build people's houses with their hands but with their hearts and souls. As this two parter shows. I like two parters as it expands more I think. But I also like one parters as well. As this family has their house and learning center that they work with Hawaii families ruined. So the EHM team comes and builds them not only a awesome new house. But goes once step further and building them a new center with kids drawing the birds that leads to the new place. Along with desk space with computers.
