The energy has been soaring all day.
"We are bringing them in, so we'll ask for all your energy Baltimore," said a director on the set of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
It started at the Inner Harbor, live on Good Morning Maryland, when seven young women got the surprise of a lifetime.
"I was like oh my God," said Milan Dower, “Boys Hope Girls Hope” resident.
"I'll now forever mark July 9th as the best day that ever happened to me," said Shaolin Holloman, “Boys Hope Girls Hope” resident.
Seven girls kept their fingers crossed until Ty Pennington and the design team from "Extreme Makeover" arrived in Baltimore. The girls are part of the non-profit organization "Boys Hope Girls Hope," which pulls them out of tough neighborhoods.
Shaolin Holloman has good reason to want to leave West Baltimore.
"You have grown men messing with young kids. You have a lot of fights going around, gangs. And I just want to get away from it all," said Holloman.
"All the girls have come from a single parent, the mother that's raising the family. The neighborhoods, the community in which they are living in, is not the best, not the safest area," said Cynthia Burks-Harriel, the house mother.
After a week of building, the girls will leave their families behind and live in their new home. Workers with Excel Homes in Pennsylvania have created a modular home that will be brought in with the help of volunteers.
Still, it will take hundreds of volunteers to get seven girls a new lease on life.
"I know I have more people to trust, more people to count on," said Williams.
The show featuring the new home is scheduled to air this Fall.
