Extreme Makeover: Home Edition travels to Prince George’s County, MD – with celebrity volunteer Tyler Perry (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne) – to repair the Tripps crumbling home. Tripp’s father ran a bus ministry for a local Baptist Church. Now a generation later, Tripp and Tamara are continuing a family tradition of service and generosity. About 40 kids each week board the bus for fun and safe activities. Tripp and Tamara have taken on the role of mentors to many of these children. Since their church cannot afford to fund the activities available through the “Big Blue Bus,” the Tripps pick up the tab. Earning only modest salaries from their regular jobs, Tripp and Tamara have little left over to repair the crumbling house they share with their young sons, Micah, 5, Ethan, 3 and Aaden, 9 months.
