Extreme Makeover Unveils Indy's Pride

By May 18, 2009

If you watched the season finale of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, you couldn't help but feel the pride in what appeared to be one of Indianapolis's most desolate neighborhoods. The crumbling facades of the homes in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood belied the spirits of the people who lived in them. One resident in particular stood out -- Bernard McFarland -- the extremely deserving recipient of a beautiful new home in typical Extreme Makeover fashion. But the entire community received a facelift, and Bernard's vision of a brighter future for the youth in the neighborhood gained momentum thanks to the building of Pack House 2000, a community learning center, adjacent to the McFarlands' home, and the conversion of the McFarlands' backyard into a recreational center of sorts.

Ever wonder what life would be like after such an amazing change? WRTV will take a look at life for the McFarlands two months later in a one-on-one interview, "After the Reveal," on its 11 p.m. newscast Monday night. Tune in for this revealing update.
